The Man United versus Man City derby may prove to be vital in deciding the destination of this season’s Premiership title; but that other northern crucible of football rivalry – Liverpool – has already finished a clear first in another important league: Plastic Surgeon’s table showing the tonnages of building components saved from going to landfill, thanks to the company’s unique repair service.
For anyone unfamiliar with what our operatives do, our 100 plus highly skilled Finishers out on the road routinely repair scratched, dented and chipped substrates right across the interior and exterior areas of UK buildings.
Thanks to the “Mobile Finishers” that every operative carries and records their completed jobs on, Plastic Surgeon is able to provide customers with accurate break-downs on their billing which includes the items repaired and estimates of the weight saved from going to landfill.
Then the figures can be interrogated to show the most common components that receive attention – internal doors lead the way over windows, worktops and external doors as the most popular repairs – or the geographic areas for our visits; amongst other statistics.
We therefore know that while we saved 65.79 tonnes of waste from being skipped within the Greater London area, this total was well beaten by a stunning 78.14 tonnes in Liverpool. Third in the rankings was Southampton at 36.53 tonnes, while Scotland’s two big conurbations of Glasgow and Edinburgh, in turn saw 28.12 and 23.08 tonnes saved.
Just to paint some detail on these repair figures, as the firm’s blogger, I know that Plastic Surgeon has been involved with a couple of major, long-running sites in Liverpool over the past year including the Mann Island commercial scheme close to the historic waterfront buildings there. And Southampton happens to be where we have been working on board some of the world’s biggest cruise liners, as well as setting sail on them to carry out repairs while they are at sea. The stand-out job in Edinburgh, meanwhile, has been our on-going recoating of enamel baths for the city council’s housing department.
The Finishers also often take photos of their work and you’ll find no end of case studies on our website – all of them helping explain how the thousands of repairs we do not only add up to some impressive statistics, but save our clients a fortune while also saving vital resources and energy.
