Anchor Case Study
B J Builders have been on the approved supplier list of 'Anchor Staying Put' for over 15 years and have provided quotations for works on behalf of individuals in the private market and qualifying for DFG works. A close working relationship with Anchor's team has enabled us to provide best value and on occasions provide extra works not covered for by the Grant at no extra cost to see a job complete. For example we offer at no extra charge to supply and fit a coloured border tile in their bathroom and also to decorate the bathroom. Below is an example of a typical job/contract carried out on behalf of Anchor Staying Put.
Initial contact was made from Anchor sending us their specification which is an interpretation of the Council's specification, with a set date for return of quotation.
An appointment was made to view the property and survey the works based on the specification provided.
A conversation with resident/customer was had explaining what has been laid out and what is to be provided, ensuring they understand the copy of the specification and drawing that they have.
A quotation was then provided to Anchor within timescales requested.
Works required: Conversion of existing bathroom to fully level access shower room on 1st floor with further works to widen doorways.
Provided quotation and as successful contractor, works order and minor works contract was signed to carry out the works.
We then contacted the customer and programmed the works for the required start date.
