Rixonway Kitchens

May 17th, 2017 by
Rixonway next day

Rixonway Kitchens, one of the leading manufacturers working in affordable and social housing, has launched a Next Day kitchen delivery service.  The national service is a direct response to both clients and contractors need to have a kitchen delivered as quickly as possible to speed the re-let times for void properties.

The ability to order a Trieste Kitchen before 3pm and have it delivered the next day ensures that no time is being lost when ordering fixtures and fittings for a void property.  Furthermore the kitchens are delivered to a valid plot postcode and are rigid thus reducing the installation time. This new service provision is in addition to the launch of the “Call off Manager” IT system. The system, which meets the demand from Contractors to specify and order kitchens via a secure online portal, removes the delay in waiting for a purchase order to be raised prior to placing an order. Once an order is called off, the contractor can track their unique production and delivery schedule online thus reducing both time and administration costs.

Sales Director Phil Bonar said: “We have a record of consistently introducing innovations and improving our service provision. The next day delivery service creates a unique position in our industry and allows vacant properties to get back on the market quickly and efficiently”.

 For further information please contact Rixonway on 01924431300 or view the next delivery film online at http://www.rixonway.co.uk/social-housing/nextdaydelivery/

Bolsover District Council / Woodhead project success (procured via EEM)

May 9th, 2017 by

From blackwell blight to B@HOME

Six properties have now been built on the former Blackwell Hotel site which, in recent years, has been an eyesore for local residents.

The development is the second to be progressed through the B@Home programme, which was procured through EEM Ltd. It’s a multi-million pound investment in new housing for Bolsover District Council who are working in partnership with Robert Woodhead Ltd over a four-year period.

The programme aims to deliver an anticipated 150 high quality, energy efficient homes, which will address local housing needs across the District. 13 properties have been built so far, with another eight on Fir Close in Shirebrook nearing completion and work is starting on a further 49 this year.

Built on the derelict site of the former Blackwell Hotel, the new development boasts five 2 bedroom houses and a 2 bedroom bungalow on the corner of Primrose Hill and Alfreton Road.

Work on the site began early last summer and was completed mid-April. Due to high demand, all of the properties were tenanted and occupied within one week of completion.

Bolsover District Council’s Cabinet Member for Housing, Councillor John Ritchie said, “This second stage development of council homes in our district is another step forward to achieving our goal of around 150 homes over four years.

“It’s not just about housing, 9 work experience students from Tibshelf Community School have worked on this Blackwell development.

“These students were studying for the WJEC Level 1 First Award in Construction in The Built Environment and have gained valuable first-hand experience on this site, also with 94% of subcontractor spend being within 40 miles of site, we are proving that we are delivering both social and economic benefits to our district.

“Being able to provide our residents with quality homes is a priority and if we can regenerate a derelict piece of land to improve the overall appearance of the area, then that is a bonus.”

Glenn Slater, Business Development Director at Robert Woodhead Ltd, said: “The B@Home partnership aims to create a positive impact on the District, not just by building new homes for local families, but in providing a wide range of work experience, training and job opportunities.

“What makes this development special is Bolsover District Council’s ability to take direct action to rapidly progress a run-down site and create six brand new family homes, which contribute to the local community, while creating an attractive streetscene.”

Rebecca Dermody, Head of Operations for EEM Ltd, said: “We always aim to develop frameworks which help our members achieve the best value, in addition to offering wider community benefits.

“B@Home is one of our flagship projects, which embodies all the values and vision we have for the frameworks we develop. It’s fantastic to see the second site completed on this project, and we look forward to watching the scheme progress further.”
