Refurbishing blocks of flats has formed the majority of A S Ramsay’s work over the last 25 years and we have become very experienced in the occupant liaison and the careful planning required.
Our regular client base of Managing Agents includes Grainger PLC, Douglas and Gordon, Burlington Estates and Kinleigh Folkard and Hayward who all trust us to deliver their project professionally and to the highest standard.
WHAT WE DID
RT Management Company
“Harris Associates has worked with A S Ramsay for a number of years almost exclusively on residential mansion block major works schemes. During 2016 A S Ramsay have been appointed as main contractor on a number of contracts under our direction [as contract administrator]. The most notable contracts include Belgravia Square (contract sum £170K), Castellain Mansions (contract sum £550K), Artillery Mansions (contract sum £400K) and Southwold & Cleveland Mansions (contract sum £1.2M). Castellain and Belgravia are external renovation projects and Artillery and Southwold & Cleveland are internal refurbishment projects.
As with all major works projects in this sector it is vital that a main contractor is seen (and acts) as an integral part of the team delivering the works [for the benefit of the residents] rather than just be viewed as a contracting firm. A S Ramsay understand that they are in the “service” business rather than just “contracting”. They are flexible, “non-contractual” and have a tremendous teamwork ethic that transcends through each level from the directors, through their team of contact managers and onto the site managers and delivery teams. They performed particularly well on the Southwold and Cleveland project which required very precise programming and organisation of the different facets of the job, including asbestos removal, electrical mains renewal as well as complete refurbishment of 12 residential blocks.”
