Innovative Efficiency Saves Clients’ Money

Over a three month period Nottingham City Council required various refurbishment works to 11 Community Centres with a value of £101,000. Woodhead Improve were able to package the works together for pricing by way of example, all flooring across all buildings were priced as a bundle to achieve efficiencies. Woodhead Improve also co-ordinated all projects simultaneously which enabled the team to assign a‘roving’ site manager across all projects rather than appointing one to each and every job.  Total Savings = £6,785.19 (6.7%)
