It has never been more vital to ensure that social housing is maintained to the highest possible standards. This responsibility to residents means that it’s not only essential that they can live in safe and habitable conditions, but that there should also be minimal disruption to their daily lives while the necessary cleaning works or improvements are being carried out.
Where these are taking place at height it’s often the housing association’s first move to set about erecting scaffolding to provide safe access for the contractors who will be carrying out the work. However, this can frequently be an inefficient, disruptive and costly approach.
In many situations, where the conditions are right, a truck mounted platform offers a number of clear advantages for both the residents and the contractors, not to mention for the housing association as well.
- Minimised disruption
- Greater security
- Faster repairs
- Dramatically reduced costs
So, all things considered, our in-house and readily available access platforms can be the perfect alternative to using a traditional contractor & scaffolding. There will of course be circumstances when the latter is the best option, but it’s well worth making sure by speaking to NSS.
- Ability to deal with a wide range of building types and access challenges
- In-house truck mounted platforms for minimised disruption
- Faster repairs and dramatically reduced costs compared to scaffolding
