Greenock maintenance deal for Wates

2 Aug 12 Affordable housing contractor Wates Living Space has started its first planned maintenance project through the I-FLAIR Framework.

Wates has started on site delivering 34 central heating replacements and associated works for Cloch Housing Association in Greenock.

Cloch is one of eight housing associations that have joined to form the I-FLAIR Group to procure building maintenance work.

Wates Living Space bid centre manager Gillian Lavety said: "We have extensive expertise in this kind of work and are extremely pleased to be working with Cloch Housing Association on our first project through this innovative framework. Wates replaced over 1000 central heating systems in Renfrewshire alone last year which gives us unrivalled experience to bring to this project.”

Cloch project development officer Andrew Cassels said:  "All housing associations recognise that planned maintenance is an essential part of keeping their housing stock in good condition and there is a strong history of cooperation and information exchange between associations. Both these and the current difficult economic times were the catalysts which lead to the creation of the I-FLAIR group, and this is the first of what Cloch hope will be many successful projects   under the I-FLAIR umbrella, and we look forward to working with Wates.”
