Spotless subbies get stuck in

A couple of months ago, Spotless subbies got stuck in to make a difference to a small community of 26 Housing New Zealand homes in Mangere, South Auckland.

The Spotless team and subcontractors Coin Total Upgrades Ltd, CJ’s Property services, MD Property Services, Electrical Sales and Services Limited, Keith Good Electrical Services and Dreco Limited all worked together to achieve a great result for tenants.

The complex had been experiencing issues with rubbish dumping and some tenants also needed a helping hand to tidy their properties.

Spotless organised skip bins to be delivered the day before so they were onsite and ready to go. Joint pre-work had also been done to scope maintenance activities that would be required, including house washing, fence repairs and tree trimming work.

During the day, subbies worked collaboratively with tenants and Housing New Zealand teams to access individual properties to carry out electrical and smoke detector testing. Trade staff were also able to carry out any immediate repairs on the spot and arrange for any major work to be scheduled for a later date. A barbeque at the end of a hard day’s work capped off a very successful day for everyone.

All up, seven very full skip bins and 82 cubic metres of rubbish were cleared from the area, resulting in clean, tidy and refreshed homes for tenants.

Great work everyone.
