United Living Property Services awarded £3.2m contract to renovate social housing in Grantham

United Living Group, a provider of infrastructure, housing and property services, has been awarded a £3.288m contract for the Earlesfield Estate Capital Works Project by South Kesteven District Council in Lincolnshire.

The local authority has identified 152 post-war properties with Asbestos Containing Material (ACM) in Grantham, Lincolnshire. A number of the properties to benefit from the works are “Wimpey No Fines” design, a typical post-war construction.

In addition to removing the ACM, replacement kitchens and bathrooms will be fitted in 143 of the homes, accompanied by electrical, heating and door upgrades in a similar number.

During the works, around 112 households will be temporarily rehomed during the renovations to minimise disruption. A property on the estate will become a dedicated information hub where residents can find out more and keep up to date with progress. United Living Property Services will focus on delivering a high-quality renovation and ensuring it takes residents’ views into account.

Simon Will, Managing Director, United Living Property Services, said: “We are absolutely delighted to have been selected to work on this important project with South Kesteven District Council. As a local contractor working in areas such as Wolverhampton and Walsall, the scheme is perfectly positioned to fit in with our local delivery model.

“We look forward to working with both the Council and residents to ensure they have a home that is greatly improved at the end of the scheme.”

Cllr Robert Reid, South Kesteven District Council cabinet member for housing and property, said: “We are very happy to be working with United Living Group on this major Earlesfield Estate improvement programme. We are committed to providing housing that meets the needs of all residents and I am pleased to see our funding approved by the council so that work can get underway.

“South Kesteven District Council has engaged with the tenants on the estate to enable a full understanding of the works to be undertaken and subsequent timeline. I hope they will be reassured by this clear commitment to improving their homes.

“It is a project that will deliver numerous benefits and is further evidence of the wider improvements we continue to see in our Housing service.”
