Sustainable repair for social housing – whitepaper

Sustainable repair for social housing – whitepaper

Author: Bruce Meechan, B.Sc Civ. Eng.

Executive Summary

The work of the affordable housing sector and its building industry partners, towards achieving the Decent Homes standard, and of maintaining the stock as a whole has seen many billions spent on repair, replacement and upgrade; and yet the task can never be viewed as completed.

Properties ‘fall out of decency’ constantly as a result of wear and tear, while accidental damage by both occupants and workers involved in carrying out other building operations eat up vast sums of money.

In this document, Plastic Surgeon outlines the challenges faced and offers the sector an insight into a repair service that can rightly be described as unique: assessing the financial, social and sustainability benefits of undertaking cosmetic improvements as a highly viable alternative to replacement, as well as to utilizing individual trades personnel to carry out tasks they are often ill equipped to attempt.
