The Asset Management section handles the physical quality of the housing stock.
The team is led by Director of Asset Management Iona Taylor and 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 we ensure the service is as good as possible.
Our Repairs team consists of five staff members and is led by Repairs Manager Ciorsdan Wilson. All of the works carried out for tenants are contracted to external companies, and we ensure all contractors provide a top quality service.

The Capital Projects team is 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 Steven Clunie and consists of four staff members, delivering an annual programme in excess of £1 million per year.
