SEC 2021

We are looking forward to seeing you all today at #SEC2021, meeting existing contacts and making new ones. Please come and visit our stand and meet our team! We are delighted to join everyone again for the annual conference to discuss opportunities, challenges and the ways in which we can enable change in our industry.

Joan Hughes Court

With the project now complete at the retirement living village of Joan Hughes Court, and after two and a half years of works, we are delighted with the result! 

The project involved remodelling 73Nr existing bedsits into 61Nr 1 and 2 bedroom self-contained flats. Particular attention was centred on ensuring that the residents have communal spaces and areas of engagement such as visitors’ accommodation, communal lounge, kitchen, laundry, games, reading and hobby rooms. The goal was to provide bright and welcoming spaces for residents and their friends and family to spend quality time.

“It has been a pleasure to work with Niblock Building Contractors at Joan Hughes Court and we are delighted with the end result. I have to commend the way you have carried out the project during such a testing time and look forward to working with you again on future projects.” – David Skipper, Lawson Queay

This project came with its challenges when COVID-19 spread globally in March 2020, causing the project to be shut down, not once but twice, thus extending our programme. For all parties involved, it was imperative that we maintained residents’ safety whilst works were completed. Indeed, prior to works being carried out, a pilot scheme was devised to remodel 2Nr flats. This gave full understanding of the challenges that the project presented and enabled us to adopt a coordinated approach to work with vulnerable residents.

Working together with our Client, Wealden District Council, and our Project Administrator, Lawson Queay, we put measures in place to achieve a safe working environment and in turn completed the scheme safely and to an excellent standard. 

“Thanks to the Niblock team for all your hard work and the lovely, refurbished building we have now. Enjoy your next project, may it be in more stable times without another pandemic to test you!” – Wealden Council

We were also very pleased to receive the following feedback from residents, particularly given the challenging times that works were carried out in:
‘Thank you for all your help throughout the time. You have been our coordinator and friend.’ – Resident
‘Your helpful correspondence on everything that has been going on has been invaluable’ – Resident

Dementia Friends

Today is World Alzheimer’s Day.

We are committed to furthering our knowledge about dementia awareness and are rolling out a programme via the Alzheimer’s Society to train employees across Niblock Builders and Niblock Electrical Services to better understand the impact of dementia on those living with the condition.
Today, three employees have already undergone the training and have become Dementia Friends!

Southwood Court

Following our recent completion of the External Repairs and Renovations at Southwood Court we are pleased to have received excellent feedback from the Contracts Administrator, Robert Martell, and as a thank you to the Residents held an Open Day with light refreshments.

“Niblock were contractors for the external refurbishment and renovation of windows, brickwork and roofing for a listed estate in Hampstead.

From the outset, Niblock were brilliant in liaising with residents regarding their H&S policies and the method statements associated with the carrying out of the works. Throughout the 7 month contract Niblock maintained a safe site with no incidents reported.

Niblock were proactive in addressing ongoing design, scope and costs issues with regular cost updates throughout the project. Every month Niblock prepared an updated programme that was appropriately adapted to accommodate additional works and essential variations. Niblock achieved the agreed Practical Completion date of 31st August and provided a project of excellent quality which more that satisfied Hampstead Gardens Suburbs Trust and left happy tenants enjoying their new surroundings.
An exceptional management team and group of Subcontractors.

I have no hesitation in commending Niblock to private landlords and social landlord clients for renovation and refurbishment projects.” Robert Martell
