Dear Northwards Housing Limited,
Can you please provide the total cost of the replacement of the original metal rainwater pipes to plastic during the refurbishment of the Collyhurst tower blocks and furthermore the replacement of the plastic pipes with smaller metal pipes during the fireproofing works.
I am requesting the costs of the materials and labour costs which must have been created for each project, if you do not have these then a total cost of all materials for this job and an estimate of the labour will suffice for each replacement across the 4 Collyhurst tower blocks.
If you have any recorded justification notes from project meetings where this decision was made please also provide.
I am in receipt of your Freedom of Information request which I received via The What Do They Know Website.
Your request is being looked into and the deadline for providing this information is 20 working days. However, I will try and provide the information as soon as possible.
If you have any questions in the meantime please do not hesitate to contact me.
