Major Refurbishment Contract (MRC) - Flat blocks

We are currently undertaking a programme of major refurbishment work to blocks of flats (not including the tower blocks) which began in the year 2018/19.

The programme is being delivered by two Contractors Wates Living Space and Mulalley and Company.

The type of work included will vary from block to block, and will be dependent on a detailed survey of each block.

The type of work may include:

  • Roofs
  • Windows
  • Communal doors
  • Structural repairs and alterations
  • Internal and external redecoration to communal areas
  • Communal floor coverings
  • Communal and emergency lighting
  • External works including walls, fencing and paving
  • Fire safety equipment
  • Rewiring to communal areas including new landlord supply and lighting
  • Door entry systems
  • Block signage

Please note this list is an example of some of the main elements that may be included. Works to each block may vary. All aspects of the block, building and communal areas will be reviewed and potentially form part of this contract.

Take a look at the presentations from our partners Wates and Mulalley to see the progress we have already made and their important other work in the community.
