Hodgson Sayers replaced soft fit guttering down pipes and existing roof coverings with new materials including, where necessary, loft roll insulation and Celotex boarding. External wall insulation was also a key requirement, as the council looked to further save on energy output and cost for its tenants in the long term. As the project was a ‘live’ one with tenants occupying all properties, it was particularly important that Hodgson Sayers kept a clear line of communication with all that were affected by the works.
