Project Organisation

The main pitched roofing, rendering and all other external works were completed as part of a larger External Works contract on behalf of Caerphilly Council.


A dilapidation survey, including photos was completed for each property and all tenants had the required pre-start meeting with the Jefferies Site Manager and were informed of the works and progress throughout the contract. A property report was complete for each property and highlighted any potential extra works including rain water goods, structural repairs and wall ties that need replacing. All roofing works were signed off and received the required Marley warranty. All the rendering works received the PPG rendering warranty.


Contact with Caerphilly CoW, Project Manager and housing team is daily, and all complaints and queries are dealt with promptly to reduce further risks and improve KPI’s. Weekly and monthly meeting are being held to ensure all works are completed to the required specification and to the programme.
