100% compliance guarantees safety for L&Q residents

Thursday, December 18, 2014

L&Q, which owns and manages over 70,000 homes in London and the south east, has hit 100% gas compliance for its South East and Thames neighbourhoods, covering more than 14,200 homes in Greenwich, Bexley, Dartford and the Medway towns.

This is the first time that the organisation has hit full compliance. Working in partnership with gas engineers from K&T Heating all its customers received a comprehensive service at a time that suited them.

Dave Greenfield, Managing Director at K&T Heating, said: “We’re thrilled to have achieved 100% compliance, and we aim to do this for all our clients. The main challenge for us is gaining permission from all customers for access to their homes, but we’ve worked closely with L&Q to make it happen. Our good relationship with the local community and excellent communications make a big difference.”

L&Q work hard to educate residents about the dangers of faulty appliances, which in the worst cases can lead to loss of lives. The tests we carry out guarantee that customers can live safely in their homes.

Nigel Wiles, Technical Services Director at L&Q, said: “I would like to pass on my appreciation to your team and thank you for your efforts in becoming the first gas contractor to report 100% for all your stock. You are setting the benchmark for the other gas contractors and should be proud of this achievement.”

All our gas engineers are Gas Safe accredited and we have a long and successful track record in managing gas contracts.
