Nottingham City Homes (NCH) has stepped in to save the day when a local school was let down on a refurbishment job. Hempshill Hall Primary School in Bulwell had originally appointed a contractor to build and refurbish new toilets. However the school was let down by the contractor – so NCH stepped in last minute to get the job done.
NCH Construction, Repairs and Maintenance Services, in partnership with Nottingham City Council pulled together a team to refurbish the Year 3/4 and Year 5/6 toilets, which have significantly improved the welfare facilities for the school children and staff.
The work was carried out mostly over the summer holidays, so that disruption to the school as minimum. The school have praised NCH for stepping up to do the job. Clive Squire, Site Manager at Hempshill Hall Primary School: “We would like to thank NCH and their teams for the refurbishment of our toilets at such short notice. They have transformed the original three cubicles into a fantastic toilet block. We really appreciate the time NCH have spent at school on the toilet project to get it ready for handover.”
Karen Gregg, Joint Head Teacher at Hempshill Hall Primary School: “We are really pleased with our new toilets. The team on site were excellent and worked really hard to complete the project in the tight timescale. The quality of finish and workmanship is good.”
Delroy Beverley, Director of Construction, Repairs and Maintenance Services at NCH, said: “It has been a privilege to work with the school to create new and modern toilet facilities. When the school were let down by a private contractor at the last minute, we knew we had to step in and help them. When we told our staff about what happened, there was a significant number of colleagues volunteering to be involved in delivering the works.
“We hope the school enjoys their new facilities. In the last twelve months, NCH Construction, Repairs and Maintenance Services have carried several successful project to Nottingham City schools in partnership with Nottingham City Council.” ENDS
