  • Client background

  • Crawley Borough Council manages 9,500 properties in the town under its Crawley Homes brand. The council has invested significantly in a major decent homes programme and has a maintenance programme which runs through until 2020.

  • Our work with Crawley Homes

  • Crawley Homes selected Premiere as their preferred supplier in 2008. In January 2009 Premiere provided the first kitchens for the Crawley Homes Decent Homes scheme. 

    Working in partnership with Apollo and Wates Living Space we successfully delivered 3,929 kitchens with up to 120 kitchens per week being delivered to two different stores. At the peak period that amounted to more than 1,000 cabinets in one week!

    Premiere worked very closely with the client, its contractors and consultant, attending weekly meetings to ensure that every logistical detail was addressed.

    With our keen eye for detail and problem solving skills we allocated a specific account manager to the scheme and developed solutions with the client and the contractors to ensure that everything was 'on time and in full'.

  • Solutions provided by Premiere

  • These include: 

    Cost savings for consultation on design, products and accessories.

    Logistics solutions when the product changed mid-way through the scheme.

    • Help with contractor store stock checks and storage advice to help minimise damage in storage.
    • Delivery of replacement kitchens during the main contract within 48 hours and extra staff to help with deliveries and checks.
    • Working with local contractors and occupational therapists to provide on-going solutions for disabled adaptions works.
    • Support for Crawley Homes' on-going needs after the main programme. This included working with local builders' merchants to hold stock for planned maintenance, reactive repairs and work on voids. 
    • Premiere continues to provides stock replenishment in five working days and our contract runs until 2020 when we hope to secure it again.
