REACTIVE REPAIRS

WHHA is please to advise that the Reactive Repairs Contract for Year’s 2013 – 2016 has been awarded to Argyll contractor Oban Electrical Services.  This new term contract covers all reactive repairs to all of the WHHA stock across Oban, Lorn and the Isles

With OES we will be rolling out a new repair by appointment system and a new electronic work flow system which enables tradesman to collect better information about the repair and work done, time in and out of the property and customer satisfaction.  The system will help us improve on aspects of customer service as well as collecting all this information required to allow us to report on the maintenance aspects of the Social Housing Charter.

OES will deliver this contract with the support of a few island Contractors.

Angus MacPherson, Managing Director of OES said “OES have been delivering most of the Term Maintenance Contract work for WHHA since 2009 and to win the next 3 year  contract is great news for OES as we continue to expand our Reactive Repairs Service and Facilities Management  portfolio”
