Avant Homes renews nationally exclusive contract with repair and finishing specialist
A specialist finishing and repair firm has secured an extended agreement to continue to provide its services to Avant Homes on an exclusive, national basis.
Plastic Surgeon initially signed an agreement with Avant Homes last year and this has now been extended until 2019, with the exclusivity of the agreement meaning only Plastic Surgeon’s repair specialists are called into work on Avant Homes’ housebuilding projects. The repairs are usually required ahead of the handover period, when homes need to be to the Avant Gold Mark Standard.
Avant Homes sets a high standard for the quality of its projects with a strong emphasis on corporate social responsibility. Plastic Surgeon’s skills ensure that newly built properties are in the perfect condition for Avant Homes to handover to their new owners, while also making huge environmental savings on waste going to landfill due to making a repair over replacement where possible.
Martin Sanwell, procurement director of Avant Homes, said of Plastic Surgeon: “Responsibility plays a huge part in our ethos as a business. The specialist services offered by Plastic Surgeon, helps to ensure we do our bit for the environment, whilst also ensuring that the finish of each property is to the Avant Gold Mark standard. Ordinarily, you’d think an item would need replacing, which inevitably ends up in landfill. But Plastic Surgeon’s Finishers are able to make extremely impressive repairs that stops this happening.”
He added: “What’s particularly useful to us is the reporting system that Plastic Surgeon uses. We’re able to drill down and determine what type of repairs are required and determine a pattern, which helps to work on ways to stop these repairs being needed in the first place, while also casting a light on just how much waste is being saved by the firm’s services. We’re extremely pleased to have extended our contract with them.”
Plastic Surgeon, which operates throughout the UK, provides surface repair to a range of industries, including housebuilding, construction, cruise, facilities management, manufacturing and retail, amongst others, using its specialist skills to fix cosmetic damage caused during the course of construction projects, by accidental damage or through general wear and tear.
Richard Moreton, national account manager at Plastic Surgeon, said: “We’re delighted to have extended our agreement with Avant Homes. The firm is a noted, high-end housebuilder and we’re proud to be partnered with them. By extending the agreement they’re demonstrating the value they place on our specialist services.”
He added: “With Avant taking CSR very seriously, the landfill savings our repairs offer – not to mention the quality of the work we do – helps to ensure the firm meets its high targets, both in terms of the environment and the quality of its house builds. We’re looking forward to continuing to deliver for them on site, and helping them to achieve these targets.”
