Ian Williams Awarded Aids and Adaptations Framework for Bristol City and North Somerset Councils
Building on a strong track record and good working relationship with BCC, the leading property services company is in an excellent position to deliver as sole incumbent on this framework.
General Manager at Ian Williams, Craig Hansell who will take responsibility for this contract commented: “Our teams have extensive experience of delivering aids and adaptation works and on this project specifically, the scope includes the installation of level access showers, general building work, adjustable height kitchen units and door entry systems. But it’s about much more than the works themselves. It’s about how we deliver these products and services, bearing in mind that 95% of the properties will be occupied, often by vulnerable residents, some of whom may be older, and some of whom are younger with physical impairments. All of our directly employed operatives who will be working in these homes have undergone sensitive working training and are well versed in the need for close cooperation with occupational therapists, RLOs and residents’ families where necessary. Our teams are looking forward to working closely with both councils to help them deliver a person-centred adaptions framework that will ultimately enable people to access a greater choice of independent living at a time when demand is high.”
Peter Lauer, Technical Supervisor at Bristol City Council adds: “I’m really looking forward to the dynamic aspect of working with the Ian Williams team as we collaboratively innovate new and better ways of doing adaptations.”
