Case study

Aspect Property Services partners with Victory Housing Trust

31st May 2019

Aspect Property Services currently undertakes housing refurbishment works under the Eastern Procurement (EP) Framework. This Framework is for 4 years running from February 2016 through to February 2020. The size of orders called-off under the Framework can range from 10 properties to over 2000.

Under the EP Framework Aspect has been carrying out works for Victory Housing Trust (VHT) since November 2016. We are currently in the second year working to deliver their annual refurbishment programme; having completed 66 bathrooms, 93 kitchens and 94 roofs in the past year.

 

The programmes are delivered by our dedicated teams under the close supervision of our contract management team. All works are undertaken whilst the properties are fully occupied. Our site supervision and co-ordination teams liaise closely with residents to ensure they are kept advised of our works. We are committed to working to individual residents needs and doing so has resulted in exceptional Resident Satisfaction scores. Working closely with our clients, we have completed works on time and in budget, ensuring the partnering arrangement is successful for all parties.
