Gorehedge Frome

Following a fierce fire, the property needed extensive renovation as the flat had received 70% fire damage and 100% smoke damage and there was 70% smoke damage to the surrounding corridors

The work undertaken principally consisted of renovation repairs following the fire.  Consort Services were contracted to renovate the property so that it regained a certain standard in line with requirements expected for habitat. 

Initially we supplied and installed a fixed scaffold and the external fabric of the building was cleaned and checked for structural damage.  All evidence of smoke was removed from the brickwork and all relevant gutters, fascias and pipework were replaced.

Internally, every room need to be cleared of fixtures and fittings. All windows and sills were taken out and replaced.  All doors were removed and replaced, and the existing plastered walls and ceilings were stripped so new plasterboard could be installed prior to applying a coat of plaster and relevant decoration.

All skirting’s, architraves &door linings were removed and then replaced throughout. All of these were also decorated accordingly.

The kitchen was completely stripped of the cabinets, fixtures and fittings, and we installed new cabinets, sink/drainer and appliances supplying all relevant plumbing and electrical services.

All tiles were removed, and upon the installation of new tiles the kitchen was decorated throughout and a new vinyl floor covering was installed

In the bathroom the whole suite (basin, bath, shower, and W.C) was isolated and removed and replaced. The walls and ceilings (plastered) were removed prior to new plasterboard and plaster being applied and relevant decorations were carried out throughout.

The whole property required a complete rewire, which consisted of stripping out the existing cable, sockets, switches etc. and replacing everything with new inclusive of new wall mounted heaters.

All wiring was tested by our qualified NICEIC registered electrician, and certified accordingly

This project called on the full scope of our trades, inclusive of Scaffolding, Builders, Carpenters, Electricians, Painter/Decorators, and Plumbers
