Flood Damage Repairs - North of England:
Deeley Construction is currently carrying out a £4million clean up operation in South Yorkshire following the floods of June 2007.
More than 150 flood-damaged properties were stripped out in the initial phase of the project last year, with a break for drying out, before being reinstated.
The scope of work in each property has varied considerably, with water levels ranging from a few inches to several metres and types of construction including small stone cottages and recently built executive homes.
Deeley are currently in the process of reinstating over 100 properties with a goal of enabling all householders to return to their homes by June 2008.
The logistics involved in surveying, costing and managing the varied works on such a high number of sites spread across a wide geographical area has required the development of a number of project specific administrative systems and IT solutions.
Although being run by the Northampton Division, Deeley has set up a short-term office in the centre of Sheffield. Staff from both the Northampton and Coventry offices are involved together with an additional two administrators, two site managers and another surveyor being brought in on a temporary basis.
The contract arose from Deeley’s existing partnership with loss adjusters Cunningham Lindsey, having worked closely together on subsidence repairs for the last five years.
