COVID-19

Posted on Wednesday, June 24th, 2020

Hope you’re all fit and well, what an absolute terrible start to the year we’ve all had, we hope you’re on track to getting back to some kind of normality.

With a lot of guidance and safety measures put into place, Tricon have been fortunate to have been able to work through the lockdown period both in the office and on site.

On site we adhered to the safety procedures laid down by the main contractors, and the advice from the Government and the Construction Leadership Council.

We have a well ventilated office, each employee has their own 2 metre space, some employees decided to work from home, we carry out regular risk assessments, had training in Covid-19 Pandemic Awareness Course, installed sanitising stations, changed our taps to automatic, and keeping both office and site staff completely up to date with news and updates.

We are looking forward to the future, and hopeful the Construction Industry will get back to normal, and wish you luck for the future.

Regents Terrace & Hedley Chase, Leeds – For St. Georges Crypt

Posted on Monday, June 8th, 2020

We continue our strong relationship with Vistry Partnerships by securing the electrical and mechanical installation works at both Regents Terrace and Hedley Chase.

St. Georges Crypt are a charity in the City of Leeds, working with the homeless, the vulnerable and those suffering from addiction.

Regents House is a home for alcohol dependent gentlemen. The 24/7 staff support the residents and allows for a tailored support plan to enable the residents to move to appropriate tenancies and become self-sufficient. Regent House works in close partnership with various agencies across Leeds to deliver the support required for this group of people.

The old home at Regent Terrace has been demolished and rebuilt into 14 self-contained flats. This positive experience of self-reliance in their own flat, coupled with the onsite member of staff to support and help in any way will make it easier for the residents to cope with life in their own tenancy once they are ready to move on.

Works commenced January 2019 and completed September 2019.

The project won Architects Brewster Bye and Vistry Partnerships the residential award in Yorkshire and Humber in the RICS Social Impact Awards.

After the success of Regents Terrace, we are now on site at Hedley Chase, this project consists of 24 No. 1 and 2 bedroom self-contained apartments and benefit from the provision of communal facilities, office, workshop and landscaped grounds will provide private outside space for residents to enjoy.

The site is part of the St. George’s Crypt initiative to provide good quality housing across the City of Leeds.

Works commence June 2020.

Our electrical and mechanical installation works for both Projects include – LV distribution, small power, internal, external and emergency lighting, fire alarm, CCTV, data wiring, door access control, lightning protection, photovoltaic installation, television, telephone wiring, hot & cold water services, new water supplies, ventilation, sanitaryware, thermal insulation, chlorination and above ground drainage, heat pump, radiators and showers.
