Artesian House

ENGIE was successfully appointed to undertake the removal and replacement of the existing external cladding at Artesian House, and to introduce internal compliance works whilst residents remain in occupation.

As per Hyde’s requirements, the cladding panels will be removed and replaced in sections and installments, ensuring each flat remains watertight at the end of each working day. Internally, the compliance work involves removing sections of the ceilings to allow access to carry out remedial work to the top of the party/communal walls, improvements around internal soil vent pipes and rainwater pipes, and other safety work.

    ENGIE provided a free fish and chip afternoon for over 40 volunteers and staff at Artesian House Health Centre as a thank you for all their hard work vaccinating local residents.

    "I wanted to personally send a huge gratitude to your team for the hard work you put in, day out; your team always checks to see if the members of staff are ok and are very considerate, but the food was a big bonus for the health centre yesterday that they’re still talking about it now as I send this email, I normally give a motivational quote to the members of staff to show support for all the work they do and for all the work you all do, I feel it’s best to give you two for the price of one." - NHS worker
