In England there are around 2.5 million housing association tenants. With a national waiting list for social housing now at 1.36 million households or 3.4 million people, any refurbishment work must be carried out quickly and with minimal distruption. Failing roofs, car parks and walkways are a fact of life, especially in the social housing sector – but what are the solutions?
For more than 150 years leading waterproofing and roofing contractor, BriggsAmasco, has been applying practical and technical expertise to a range of new and existing building requirements. This experience and skill is needed like never before with current figures showing one-fifth of Britain’s housing stock is more than 100-years-old. With many of these ageing buildings now in need of regeneration, it’s vital to choose products and systems that deliver long term performance for the client, and in social housing context, that means a fast application for the contractor and minimal distruption to the residents.
