Framework will deliver disrepair and complex works

Pretium Frameworks Ltd has launched a Total Disrepair Solutions framework which will tackle the ongoing issue of damp and condensation mould.

The PCR 2015-compliant framework was developed by Echelon Consultancy jointly with, and on behalf of, Riverside Group. The two organisations have previously worked together to set up two Disrepair Improvement Groups focused on Prevention and Remediation and Disrepair Management, which have a collective membership of 350 people from 181 individual organisations.

“Damp and condensation mould is one of the most pressing issues currently facing the UK housing sector, causing stress, anxiety and health problems for tenants, as well as being the cause of many expensive legal disrepair claims” said Jess John, Pretium’s Director of Framework Partnerships.

“This framework was developed in collaboration with Riverside to offer housing providers an easy-to-access, compliant solution for the delivery of disrepair and other complex works.

“We look forward to working with Riverside, to support the sector to tackle this growing issue.”

Phil Pemberton, Director of Asset Strategy at Riverside, added: “As one of the largest national social landlords, effective management and maintenance of our homes is paramount, but this has perhaps never been more important in the wake of several high-profile events that have highlighted systematic failures to meet basic decency standards.

“The work with Pretium Frameworks will help tackle the huge challenge damp and mould poses for the sector.”

Although the framework was developed primarily to deliver disrepair and complex works in relation to condensation, damp and mould it also covers the following.
