Chester-based contractor RSS Construction Projects has been appointed by Cheshire and North Wales waste disposal specialist Ash Waste Services to help maintain its property portfolio.
Grant Roxburgh, managing director of RSS Construction Projects, said: "This agreement will see RSS provide the complete structural rehabilitation service. This will cover advice on monitoring, protecting and restoring Ash Waste's depots in Chester, Broughton and Wrexham. It is vital to keep a very close eye on the wear and tear of buildings. We will be ensuring that any structural problems are identified early to keep maintenance costs to a minimum. Using our experience and expertise we know the kinds of problems that can arise with buildings of a certain age or which are made with certain materials. We can then work to ensure structures are strengthened and restored to extend their useful life."
Ash Waste Services, based in Broughton, operates four main depots and has 12 properties in total ranging from 2,000 sq ft to 30,000 sq ft.
Roxburgh added: "Given the industrial nature of what Ash Waste does its buildings are in heavy use. Therefore it is critical that they are closely monitored for signs of damage, corrosion and fatigue. Failure to monitor assets and buildings can result in costly and disruptive restoration works."
Neil Hassall, director of Ash Waste Services, said: "Grant and his team will be working closely with us to protect our assets. They are an experienced and knowledgeable team who will add real value to our operations helping keep our buildings in a robust state of repair reducing their whole life costs."
Ash Waste manages companies' waste collection, disposal and recycling.
