Asset Management

The Asset Management Section is split into three teams, covering repairs and servicing, capital projects and new build developments.

Repairs and Servicing

Reporting a repair is one of the main reasons our tenants contact us so it is vital that we ensure the service is as good as possible.

Our Repairs team consists of four members of staff and is led by Repairs Manager Stuart Mansell. All of the works carried out for tenants are contracted out to external companies, and we ensure that all contractors provide a top quality service.

Capital Projects

The Capital Projects team are responsible for managing and implementing the Association's planned and cyclical maintenance programmes, ensuring properties meet and surpass Scottish Housing Quality Standards (SHQS) set by the Scottish Government.

As well as maintaining SHQS standards, the focus over the next few years will be to bring properties up to the Energy Efficiency Standard for Social Housing (EESSH) by 2020 as laid out by the Scottish Government. Programmes include boiler upgrades and various insulations works.

The team is led by Capital Projects Manager Margaret Reid and consists of four staff members, delivering an annual programme in excess of 1 million pounds per year.
