Clissold Estate

Key Features

  • NHT was formed in 1968 with the charitable housing association now managing around 8,000 mixed affordable tenure homes primarily in north and east London
  • Etec were appointed to undertake internal and external decoration to four medium rise blocks in Stoke Newington
  • We surveyed all properties to determine the dimensions and specific requirements for all aspects of the work
  • Refurbishment works included the replacement of flat entrance doors, windows and decoration of communal areas
  • Electrical upgrade works to communal area distribution boards and lateral mains to flats were also required
  • This electrical work was a priority for NHT as the blocks had a short-term temporary repair in place
  • The works were divided into phases with additional works awarded for good performance


Challenges and Solutions

  • The blocks were occupied by leaseholders and therefore all costs were broken down per block in order to adhere to the Section 20 process
  • We had an RLO on site to manage the booking of appointments and answering resident queries
  • The works were delivered under a JCT Intermediate Contract with Contractors Design
  • This included responsibility for design and construction of all required M&E works, windows and doors, roofing works, fire stopping, and all temporary works and structures including scaffolding
