Axis’ contract news round-up takes a brief summary look at our recent contracted works and projects.

Axis Showers in the City

Axis has started working at a prestigious office building on Carey Lane in the City of London. We’ll be taking stock of the 2,500m2 office property in a bid to exchange and refurbish the showers. Our commercial team started conducting works in August this year, with a proposed value of £61,000. They’ll be banking on a top-notch service in the heart of the capital, to match the iconic area’s already sparkling business district.

Trust from Hornsey Housing

Hornsey Housing Trust has appointed Axis to conduct cyclical external decorations and associated repairs to four properties. The project began in October and is valued at £67,000. The organisation owns and manages 385 properties within the London Borough of Haringey and was set up in 1933 to house 400 older people and people with other support needs in Hornsey, Crouch End,
and north London.

Fusing with THCH in 2021

Axis has come together with Tower Hamlets Community Housing for a five-year contract via Fusion21’s Reactive Repairs and Maintenance Framework, Lot 1.

Worth £5 million, the contract started in October and sees us provide a blend of core reactive repairs and maintenance, void property improvements, emergency and out of hours support, and potential additional works for planned and cyclical repairs. Here’s what our client had to say about the mobilisation:

“It’s been a great experience mobilising the contract with such a well prepared and organised contractor”

Supporting Female Empowerment

Housing for Women is a charity that champions female empowerment by providing and promoting affordable homes and support services for women across 8 London Boroughs. Axis is proud to be conducting external decorations and repair works at their Pembridge Villas property, in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. The project began in August and is valued at £33,000.

It’s Fun to Work with the Y.M.C.A

There’s no need to feel down, as Axis is carrying out internal and external decorations, as well as repairs for the Y.M.C.A, St Paul’s Group. Our Housing Team will be redecorating all previously decorated surfaces of external fabrics and communal areas within properties situated at Hanwell, Northolt Grange, Greenford, Harrow and Parsons Green.

Y.M.C.A St Paul’s Group provide support to vulnerable and homeless young people across London.

Good to Go in Soho

Axis has that West End feeling after being awarded a contract with Soho Housing to deliver cyclical decorations. The contract, awarded through the South East Consortium’s Internal & External Building Works Framework, is worth an estimated £250,000. Our Housing Division will started jazzing up properties across the iconic area in August and are due to finish by Spring of next year. Soho Housing owns and manages nearly 800 homes and has 37 commercial tenants across the boroughs of Westminster and Camden.

A Gateway to Tower Hamlets

Our housing division provided internal and external redecorations, window replacements and door replacements. The project was valued at nearly £400,000 and began in June 2021. The residential properties are located at St Marks Gate, right next to Victoria Park.
