Empty Homes Refurbishments

 Terraced houses. Brick & cream with white, red or blue front doors Room with ladders & decorating equipment. Plastered but not painted 

We love working in empty homes because we're good at them. There's no secret, just good planning and using the right man for the right job. Sometimes the work period to complete an empty home refurbishment is short, because the landlord wants to get the property back into active housing stock as quickly as possible. We are used to this scenario and have developed a way of working to ensure on-time completion, every time. Firstly we major on 'Right First Time' working. Secondly we carry enough stock of materials and fittings to complete around four empty home refurbishments, ensuring that we can start quickly and eradicate time wasted driving to suppliers and back. Thirdly we keep our 'Void Teams' together, working on the same contracts so that they become used to contract specifications and requirements.

Our commercial property clients often want an element of Project Management when other specialist contractors are needed within a Project Programme. To this end QPS can provide a comprehensive Cost Plan, Project Programme and Health and Safety plan for bespoke refurbishment projects. This enables our clients to proceed quickly and effectively when refurbishing their existing premises or when relocating.

We have worked on Empty Home Refurbishments for several Housing Associations, Councils and Private Landlords looking to renovate properties before finding new tenants. These works have included bathroom fitting, kitchen fitting, tiling, flooring, plastering, decorating, carpentry, glazing, garden clearance, fencing, damp-proofing, studwork walls, external rendering, and more. Whatever you have in mind to revamp your empty property, we have the right tradesman for the job!

We work for or have worked for:

  • Portsmouth City Council
  • Winchester City Council
  • Hyde Housing
  • Waverley Council
  • Affinity Sutton

Client Quotes

“QPS came recommended when we needed to relocate our business from two industrial premises into one. Despite some hold-ups our end with permissions QPS mobilised very quickly when needed and carried out the complete strip-out and transformation of an ex-MOD Police Station into a storage and workshop facility with office space in under 3 weeks. Experienced workforce, good planning and a helpful attitude made for a smooth transition.”
