Pressures of budgets are still at the forefront when it comes to businesses selecting products & services rather than a focus on quality, a decision which is causing long term issues, rising costs and questions regarding safety.
Mind sets need to change in order for these major issues to be avoided in the future and for today’s housing to be of a ‘decent’ and safe standard.
For over 85 years it has been an ethos of Sidey to provide customers with ‘Best Value’ providing the highest quality products along with the highest safety standards within our industry.
Our comprehensive list of accreditations assures customers that Sidey work to and maintains the highest standards in order to provide the best possible quality products, service and safety standards.
Quality over quantity - it's an age old lesson that too many of us choose to ignore, although sacrificing the former for the latter may grant a few short-term profits, however long term effects can be detrimental
Investment in Quality
Sidey is independently certified by the BSI to: ISO 9001, EMS 14001 & OHSAS 18001, all of which enable us to provide the highest quality of products, installation, environmental and Health & Safety standards.
Our investment in quality and innovation is one of the great benefits to companies in the Social Housing sector. Sidey can get involved at the design team stage, to work collaboratively with the architects, the constructors, and the clients themselves; to understand exactly what they want and offer quality and best value bespoke solutions, ensuring our enhanced specification windows and doors, air-tightness and installation solutions compliments the rest of the construction.
Offsite still key
Offsite Construction still offers a safe and cost effective solution to today’s housing crisis. Costs of offsite construction are no more than building through standard construction methods.
Sidey continues to invest in innovative fenestration solutions on and offsite. Building offsite offers better social value all round. Cost savings through reduced onsite construction times, faster delivery to enable people to be housed more quickly, vastly enhanced quality control, onsite health and safety benefits, significantly improved ‘as-built’ performance which delivers genuine thermal efficiency and reduced running costs for residents.
There is a growing lobby of government agencies, procurement organisations, and individual housing associations reviewing whether they should directly invest into, or partner with offsite manufacturing factories. They recognise the housing crisis which the country faces and know offsite is well and truly proven as a construction option. It is the way forward for the Social Housing sector wanting to build better quality homes; cost effectively, and most importantly sure to be delivered safely on time.
