Ribble Valley Homes – Bathroom Refurbishment

Hopley’s were awarded a 4 year frame work with Ribble Valley Homes to carryout bathroom replacements as part as their planned maintenance program which included a large element of disabled adaptations.

The general scope of works included the complete strip out of the bathrooms; removal of wall tiles and defective plaster; new toilet, basin, and WC; patch plaster and new wall tiling; new electrical fittings; complete redecoration and new vinyl flooring.

Working in occupied properties is always challenging. We sealed the area we were working in and lay roll and stroll in the access areas and every day all waste was removed the area hoovered.

Most of the disabled adaptations were in sheltered or assisted living properties, in most cases occupied by elderly and vulnerable people. We do however have a team of operatives who all have up to date DBS checks, and the site manager acts as our tenant liaison manager, always makes himself available to reassure and answer any questions the residents may have.
