“Our site supervisors are fully certificated by BM Trada to oversee the installation of these highly specialised products and our skills and experience were an important factor in the contractor choosing us to carry out the works”.
Contract Manager Dean Bradford continued “It is a contract where we were able to demonstrate both our technical skills, and the lengths we go to to ensure that the residents are our first priority in terms of service and care”.
“The installation of fire doors is obviously a very serious measure so it was important that we explained fully to the residents everything we would be doing and how the doors operated, so that they could ensure they operate as they should do once we had left the site”.
“It was also nice to see that they had input into the colour of the doors that were installed through a resident’s choice ballot, before the most popular colour was chosen for installation throughout the site. Often fire doors are seen as purely ‘functional’ products but the reality is that they are available in a wide range of colours in much the same way as any other door type, so not only did they have a full part to play in determining their safety, but also the aesthetic appearance of their homes as well”.
“It was a great site to work on and the residents are obviously happy to have new safety and security measures installed into their homes. We were able to ensure that the installation did not damage their decoration or services too, so all in all it was a really positive experience for all concerned”.
