In early 2017, Housing Choices Australia (HCA) generously assisted Community Housing in developing a ten-year Asset Management Plan to help Community Housing better manage stock under the Community Housing portfolio. Three of HCA’s asset management team joined Community Housing Manager, Kylie Preece, to inspect over 75 dwellings in three days!
In 2018 and based of the recommendations made by HCA, Community Housing has begun the implementation of a planned maintenance program which includes planned maintenance of cooling equipment, hot water systems and plumbing and electrical.
The first phase involved Community Housing establishing the Cooling Maintenance Program and entering into contracts with two local providers, Steve’s Electrix and TDC Refrigeration.
Community Housing will continue the project throughout 2018 to ensure our homes are at the best standard for our tenants.
