PROPERTY LEVEL FLOOD RESILIENCE
Whitehouse is appointed to United Utilities’ (UU) Framework for the survey, design, supply and installation of Property Level Flood Resilience to homes across their operating region in the North West; stretching from Cumbria to Cheshire. To date, we have mitigated over 1000 properties for UU using a bespoke range of products for each property.
Whitehouse provided a ’one stop shop solution’ which has been tried and tested during works with United Utilities.
We installed a range of measures on a regular basis on behalf of United Utilities including: Flood Doors, Flood Boards, Stoplog systems, Airbricks, service entry sealant, brick sealant, NRV’s and Sump & Pumps.
In line with United Utilities’ requirements, their logo and emergency contact number are permanently displayed on each product, alongside Whitehouse contact details; ensuring homeowners have instant access to assistance should it be required.
In order to cater for the large demand of this framework, we set up a base within United Utilities’ Warrington office, collaborating with their project delivery teams efficiently whilst undertaking surveying and installation works.
We employed a number of Surveyors, Project Managers and Installation Operatives within the region; which not only recycled the local pound and provided employment opportunities to local people, but also ensured that our customers have access to emergency call out teams with very short response times.
