How to keep tenants happy - new roof, swimming pool upgrade and new lifts

Property Management

A key aspect of residential property management is properly maintaining the buildings to safeguard against future expenditure. This is done in a considerably more effective and cost-effective fashion when the firm also has a Building Consultancy Department with which to collaborate.

Residents at Claremont – a 20 apartment block in Putney – have recently seen a raft of changes to significantly enhance both the fabric of the building and its overall utility, all within planned budgets and prescribed timescales. Examples as follows:


  • Main Roof Refurbishment - a new, modern, liquid applied reinforced waterproof membrane system.
  • Swimming Pool Refurbishment - ageing air and water temperature handling unit for the block’s communal swimming pool replaced
  • Lift Replacement – SHW BCD have been instructed to project manage replacement of two original 1960’s passenger lifts with a contract sum of circa £200k.


Claremont Director Mike Smith said: “SHW has done a good job under difficult circumstances and worked with the Board to update the block of flats so that the building is improving aesthetically and becoming much more of a pleasure to live in. We are pleased with our partnership with SHW and look forward to a continued relationship over many years.”


SHW Senior Property Manager Lisa Doorbar said: “It’s very satisfying to be able to bring about real wholesale improvements. Not only is the new roof much better in a practical sense, it also provides a more stylish dark grey appearance to the area which is used on summer days by some of the residents.”
