Bristol City Council has a duty defined in various acts of parliament in particular the landlord and tenant act 1985 section 11 to maintain and repair its homes. Failure to maintain our homes would result in a disrepair claim and court action against the council. Poor repair and maintenance both threatens the health and well-being of occupants and has a negative impact on the value of homes as an asset. As part of its blocks maintenance programme, this contract is to replace the existing EPS cladding system with a A1/A2 compliant system and apply a waterproof coating, and associated repairs to the existing roof coating. This will ensure a compliant external wall system is in place and also address water ingress issues at the block.


Approval to award a contract for the strip and replacement of the cladding , overcoating of the roof and associated repairs at Northfield House.
