Dyfatty Residential Refurbishment

Interserve was awarded a contract to refurbish two blocks of flats in Swansea to meet the Welsh Housing Quality Standard and improve the quality of life for tenants.

Dyfatty Residential RefurbishmentThe initial project brief comprised of overcladding and new windows, soil stack replacement, and decoration of communal areas. Upon further investigation it became apparent that the structure required extensive repair. Through liaison with the local authority housing department we discovered that an extensive internal refurbishment was due to be undertaken in the flats within the next few years. Through collaboration, it was decided that all works would be undertaken within the same project to optimise cost and quality and most importantly, minimise disruption to tenants.

The final project brief included structural concrete repairs, overcladding, reroofing and window replacement in addition to associated drainage and highway alterations. Internal works included new kitchens and bathrooms, new internal drainage, demolition of vent risers, refurbishment of communal areas, and the conversion of the ground floor storage areas into accessible flats.

Innovative planning was key to ensuring successful project delivery. Due to the occupation of all flats, many critical elements of work were dependent on good relationships with tenants to allow access when required. We therefore regularly engaged with tenants through each project stage to ensure they were informed and had opportunity to voice any concerns.

The site teams commitment to the local community on this project was demonstrated by working with a neighbouring disabled school to provide landscaping and decorating services and improvements as well as bringing 10 long-term unemployed people back into the workplace.
