Endcliffe Student Village was built under a PFI initiative for Sheffield University by a Main Contractor. Our Client have the contract for maintaining and repairing any damage. The village is always occupied by students during term time and strict rules have to be adhered to when on site. The buildings we work on are technically complex with special thermal rated glass and high-quality curtain wall panels.
Under the terms of their contract Lend Lease have strict standards of service to maintain. Depending on the seriousness of any damage they must repair within 4 hours, 10 hours or 10 days. Clear Line can be called out to any element of the building including windows, doors, roofs, gutters and façade failures.
The Client required a specialist supplier who understood the technical element of the work and who was reliable in being able to turn a job around within the deadline. Clear Line set up a supply chain and a planning and scheduling system to ensure we hit the target dates.
We are also involved in some planned maintenance works that are completed onsite such as roof remedials and gutter repairs. These planned maintenance works take place during the summer months when the buildings are not occupied.
