Asset management is broadly defined as the monitoring and maintenance of things of value; in this case, it applies to tangible assets of our buildings, your home. The team is responsible for keeping Rosebery’s housing stock in good condition, managing and procuring multiple contracts for suppliers to support this and the management of our direct repairs service.
The Asset team is divided in to four areas, day- to-day repairs, empty homes, compliance management and planned maintenance. Here is a quick summary:
Day to day repairs – The repairs team currently consisting of ten staff members who plan, programme, and carry out repairs to homes as required.
The repairs are carried out to strict target time-frames dependent on the urgency of the repair required.
We also provide a 24/7 out of hour’s service that deals with emergency repairs outside of normal working hours. In addition to our directly employed operational staff, our repairs service is supplemented by specialist sub-contractors.
Voids (empty homes) – The void team is responsible for inspection and specifying works needed to turn around the empty properties as quickly and efficiently as possible in order to house those in need.
Compliance management – Our compliance manager and his team work to keep residents safe in their homes. They procure and manage various contracts, such as Gas boilers servicing and maintenance, boiler replacement, electrical testing and rewiring, lift service and maintenance, Legionella and asbestos inspection and testing.
Planned maintenance – Planned maintenance is the name we give to the replacement or repair of certain building components, which includes the replacement of kitchens, bathrooms, external decoration, roofs and other major repairs.
Our annual planned maintenance programme makes sure that the homes most in need of works receive them first.
