Naylors Gavin Black has supported the expansion of a local authority service that helps vulnerable adults to live independently.
Middlesbrough Council’s Tees Community Equipment Service (TCES) worked closely with the industrial and building consultancy teams at Naylors Gavin Black to secure a five-year deal that will see an equipment loan store for the elderly and disabled expand its services across the region.
The TCES promotes independence and prevents hospital admissions by assisting people with their daily living needs. It has taken over a unit at Raleigh Court on Riverside Business Park to further this important work.
The unit was refurbished and project-managed by the team at Naylors Gavin Black and included full redecoration, installation of new toilets, fire exit and electric roller shutter.
Dean Clark, associate partner at Naylors Gavin Black said: “The thorough programme of improvements has made this space even more functional, to enable TCES to provide even more equipment to improve the quality of life for many individuals. We’re proud to have been involved.”
Keith Stewart, partner at Naylors Gavin Black, added: “This latest deal means only one unit now remains available on this well-positioned industrial park, which is well-served by both the A19 and A66 and lies only half a mile from the town centre, and a mile from the biggest port in the region.
“With a great deal of interest in the remaining property, we advise any interested parties to act quickly.”
