Together Housing Group - Asbestos & Demolition Framework


Together Housing Group utilised the EN:Procure Asbestos and Demolition Framework  for the Demolition 6Nr Low Rise Blocks of Flat Located at Sowerby Bridge.

Following a mini-competition process, DSR Ltd were appointed as the demolition contractor for the works. The site had various complexities, including difficult topography and premises being retained that were occupied. However, despite these challenges, the scheme completes to time & to budget.

The management, coordination and liaison undertaken by DSR was well managed and welcomed by the neighbouring properties.

A note of thanks was received from PCC Christ Church Sowerby Bridge, which read:

“Thank you for being so co-operative towards church during the demolition work. It was kind and considerate of you to work around our services and I’m glad the whole job went smoothly, and you had a “safe site”. From our point of view the disruption was minimal and the communication with us was great.”

Vice Chair Julie Smith of SDA consulting who were appointed as Employers Agent for the scheme, commented about the Framework:

"SDA have worked with Efficiency North on a number of Asbestos Removal and Demolition schemes for the Together Housing Group and have found them to be approachable and thorough.  They have provided procurement advice through their framework that has proved to be invaluable to the Client following the best and compliant routes.  In being able to utilise their Asbestos Removal and Demolition framework, this has made the procurement and contractor selection process straight forward and Efficiency North have provided valuable input in all aspects of the tender and contract award processes.”
