Project Work

We have carried out decorating, repair and refurbishment works for Unite on a national basis since 2010. Programming of works is key to the successful delivery of these schemes and as such it is vital we ensure we are ahead of the planned programme, increasing our operatives on site when required. By working with Unite and communicating our progress we are able to deliver each scheme on time.

Our works with UNITE involve, painting and flooring to bedrooms, en-suites, studios, cluster kitchens, cluster corridors, lift lobbies, communal corridors and staircases.

"Bell Group have been working on our lifecycle program for several years now. This year we estimate that they will complete refurbishment works to in excess of 530 student accomodation rooms across the UK, completing redecorations, floor replacements and bed installations."
