J Tomlinson Solution

J Tomlinson provide an effective and cost-efficient solution, working in partnership with Nottingham City Homes to achieve positive results. We focus on investigating the root cause of issues and providing future-proofed solutions. We focus largely on three areas; understanding the cause of damp issues, creating archetypal designs for major structural works, and using new approaches to underpinning/piling issues.
J Tomlinson has worked in conjunction with Nottingham City Homes to provide an excellent service through:

A fast response – using innovative technologies and methods we have provided a timely service to residents, including working with structural engineers to create a standardised suite of design for retaining walls.

Safe practice – the processes and procedures we have introduced to the contract ensure that deliver to a safe standard is continued, meaning less risk for Nottingham City Homes and its residents.

Saving time and money – we have helped to introduce long-term solutions to persistent issues, offering a ‘value-for-money’ service that is delivered on time and to budget. For example: educating residents about damp-proofing, rather than providing costly short-term fixes, has been instrumental to helping improve and maintain good living standards.

In 2018, the excellent partnership between J Tomlinson and Nottingham City Homes was recognised at the NHMF awards, where it was announced as a finalist in the ‘Best Contract’ category.

LOCAL DEPOT –  upon securing the contract, J Tomlinson purchased a depot in Bulwell, which we use as a base for material deliveries and contract meetings
