Do you have a comprehensive panel of contractors and what selection criteria do you use for selecting them?

Our selection criteria includes adequate P.I. cover, public liability cover, references from other users, developers or management companies, membership of trade associations and continuing assessment of work assignments. Ultimately, the panel is selected by the quality of the work and response times. We are happy to work with existing contractors at a development and when recommended by residents. If contractors are undertaking work at height or where risks are heightened, we ask for training qualifications, method statements and use a Permit to Work system to ensure compliance with Health and Safety legislation.
