Salix Homes


We’ve been working with Salix Homes since 2010, successfully retaining the contract in 2014 and 2018.

We’ve provided a comprehensive 10-month 3*-gas servicing, maintenance and installation service to SH for 9 years on 6,312 properties across Salford, continually maintaining 100% LGSR compliance. 

We complete 250 reactive/planned installations annually.


  • Faster decision making
  • Reduced duplication (paperwork/data)
  • Proximity to SH staff promotes helpful/information sharing environment

The CM/Supervisor are based within SH offices facilitating direct liaison with the Helpdesk/SH contract staff.

All staff live within five miles of the contract area, with five residing within Salford.
