The social housing sector are legally bound to complete annual landlord gas safety inspections and maintain their electrical installations on an ongoing basis. This is often achieved by landlords engaging with termed contractors or via direct labour delivery.
Our auditing services offer reassurance that the chosen delivery model is keeping tenants safe by raising and maintaining high standards of workmanship whilst also providing value for money.
With nationwide coverage, unique reporting systems and highly competent staff, Morgan Lambert provide an unrivalled third party auditing service.
Post inspections are the most common method of assessing the quality of works within the social housing sector. Morgan Lambert can provide a complete service for gas, electrical, oil, solid fuel or renewable technologies:

The safe and adequate operation of commercial gas plant rooms is vitally important to social housing providers. Not only does the equipment often serve multiple dwellings, with multiple end customers relying on the heat source, the expense incurred due to inadequate maintenance or installation can be costly. Morgan Lambert can assist to provide:
Commercial Gas Post Inspections – our team of commercially qualified Auditors are on hand to visit any scheme in the UK and provide an independent report on whether recent safety checks or planned preventative maintenance (PPM) checks have been completed competently.
Commercial Gas Condition Reports – long term budget allocation for commercial heating replacement works can be difficult for social housing providers. Emergency plant room upgrades can wipe out annual planned investment spends with one installation. Our condition report process provides clients with detailed reports on the lifespan of each major component within the plant room, complete with budget replacement costs, allowing accurate forecasting of capital expenditure.
When plant rooms require replacement, clients often require multiple quotations from different contractors due to the value of the works. Our experience shows that quotes can vary significantly with contractors all applying their own interpretation as to what needs to be included in the upgrade.
Morgan Lambert can act as Principle Designer under the CDM Regulations 2015 and provide:
Whether it be landlord gas safety records or electrical inspection condition reports, correctly completed documentation is essential for landlords to ensure that correct safety checks have been carried out competently.
Our new documentation review module will provide social housing providers with assurance on the quality of their documentation. The three stage process is simple:
Having spent over 10 years designing our web portal system from scratch to display our audit findings in the most robust yet user friendly format, we truly feel our cutting edge system is best in class. Detailed reports are plenty, and can be generated at contractor or engineer level as well as providing a truly national benchmarking process with over 100 registered social landlord clients. Our corrective action reporting system also allows a full audit trail to be monitored from discovery onsite to contractor closure.

Gas Manager GREAT PLACES HOUSING GROUP
I have used Morgan Lamberts QA auditing services for the past 8 years in various roles that I have managed within the gas industry, this is mostly due to their expertise within the gas industry as a market leader for safety and compliance.
I have also used their services at Peaks & Plains where we brought the gas servicing & maintenance contract in house, they provided valuable assistance with their reviews on our policies and procedures and all TUPE transfer of staff.
The QA auditors and management on our contracts have always been approachable, knowledgeable and are willing to listen if there are challenges to decisions on defects and will always keep a balanced view.
Regular contract meetings are held with all levels of management at Morgan Lambert, ensuring visibility and a willingness to approach them on all aspects of the contract.
