Some Good News...
A number of our contractors have begun to prepare themselves to resume some of the activities being carried out for Atrium before lockdown.
McTaggart Construction returned to site at Sunnyside Sq. West, Shortlees and resumed full site activity on 15th June. The site was close to completion before lockdown started and we expect to hear in the next few weeks when the phased handovers will commence and the properties can be let.
AC Whyte, the contractor undertaking the External Wall Insulation works in New Farm Loch, is proposing a return to site week commencing 22 June. Atrium has contacted those tenants involved in the project of this date and AC Whyte will contact tenants directly prior to any works commencing at their home.
Dumbreck Decorators, the contractor recently awarded the contract for external painterwork and guttering cleaning has also indicated a site start for these works around 22 June and staff and contractor will be advising tenants if involved in any of these works in advance of them taking place.
CCG, the contractor undertaking HFF21CLS works, has recently provided a ‘Return to Work’ plan with a view to managing activities in occupied properties when they are formally given the go-ahead to do so. Staff will advise tenants involved in the next phase of works well in advance of this. Staff are currently working with CCG to restart the HFF21CLS works to around 20 void properties needing major works so you might see some of their vans in the area quite soon.
We anticipate Atrium Property Services will be able to pick up on external repairs works that have been notified to us, and also undertake some works to void properties around early July. Office staff are now concluding preparation of operating procedures and risk assessments to allow a phased start into all of our current areas of activity for once lockdown is eased further. We’ll also let you know when it is possible for repairs to be can be carried out in your home with your consent.
All contractors will be completing risk assessments before undertaking works and will be required to follow procedures based on current social distancing and health and safety guidelines.
