Client : Newport City Homes
Contract Value: £722k
Contract Duration: Nov 2019 -Oct 2020
Westdale Midland Ltd were commissioned by Newport City Homes to refurbish 9 blocks of flats at Ruperra Court.
As part of the works, Westdale developed a solution to replace the existing, attached, masonry and concrete steps with bespoke designed freestanding units. This was to address the need to overcome the severe cold bridge that would have remained had the existing steps been left in place.
Using our in-house resources and supported by Consultant Engineers Curtins, We proposed a replacement steps specifically designed to minimise the time that the residents were inconvenienced by limited access. Being occupied throughout the works, the methodology of replacement of steps was the most important consideration for the delivery team. We utilised all of our skills and abilities to work through our RLO team with the Residents to ensure both a safe and convenient method. This process of logistics and bespoke method will be key to a successful delivery of the balcony renewal works at Stevenson Court.
