Faithful+Gould has won a tender to provide quantity surveying services to achieve the government’s ‘Decent Homes’ standard for 30,000 homes in Nottingham.
The Nottingham City Homes contract will see Faithful+Gould cost manage the first year of a possible five year commission for the refurbishment of thousands of kitchens and bathrooms in the city, as part of a five year regeneration project.
The work, which is set to begin in April, will see £243m worth of funding being invested in the city to ensure all of Nottingham City Council’s houses meet and exceed the ‘Decent Homes’ standard.
David Carr, Associate Director at Faithful+Gould Nottingham comments: "We are delighted to be working with Nottingham City Homes at such a critical stage of the refurbishments, which will benefit so many local people. Faithful+Gould has worked with Nottingham City Homes previously and has developed a strong working relationship as a result. I am sure that our expertise in the sector and our service experience will ensure that the project is managed professionally from the outset to ensure value for money."
The work has been divided into three streams with Nottingham Secure providing new windows in over 15,000 homes, Warmth for Nottingham will see over 11,000 new boilers fitted and Modern Living will supply over 30,000 homes with new kitchens and bathrooms.
