Lambeth Housing Standards (LHS) Programme
We are based locally within the London Borough of Lambeth and have been undertaking capital works on the Council’s housing stock since 2014. We have been working with Tier 1 contractors under a Lambeth Housing Standards Capital Works Programme delivering Lambeth Council’s various programmes since 2014. These programmes include major works to multi-occupied dwellings and blocks across the Borough of Lambeth. We were involved in complex pre-construction and design development stages with various stakeholders. SER delivered the scope of works over 2 separate phases to minimise resident disruption. The phases ran concurrently one after the other, ensuring SER completed the overall programme within the same financial year.
The internal refurbishment phase involved works in occupied tenanted flats and maisonettes. Typical works involved in the internal phase included kitchen and bathroom design and replacements, electrical testing, rewiring and upgrading work. Communal improvement work, for example, flooring, decorations, general building, FRA work, fire-stopping and FEDs (Flats Entrance Doors).
The external phase involved the complete refurbishment of mixed tenure various structures. Typical external work included design development and residents’ consultations, planning and building control documents preparation and submission. In addition, scoping surveys, scaffolding erection pitched and flat roofing renewals, chimney restoration and repairs, windows renewals, overhauling and timber resin repairs, fabric and masonry repairs involving structural surveys and repair, decorations, drainage surveys, and improvement works.
Positive Client Recognition: Lambeth Council observed our excellent strategic supply chain performance, and in recognition, we were able to directly tender for Lambeth Council’s FM Service Providers Framework. In addition, we have been successful in mini tender competition and awarded 4 contracts as a direct SME provider.
