The majority of our work originates from London Boroughs and local authorities and housing associations in the Home Counties.  This means that you can rest assured that our tender will be on time, detailed and comply with all relevant laws and policies (e.g. discrimination).  As well as our many accreditations, we also have a wealth of references and testimonials to support our bid which speaks volumes in this close knit sector.

We are one of the largest UK specialist conversion firm (c£6.5M T/O).  This gives local authority and housing association clients many advantages:

  • Price: Specialist skills and experience make us fast and we buy in bulk for our warehouse stocks.  All this keeps our costs, and thus our quotes to you, low without having to compromise on quality.
  • Speed: On-site warehouse of specialist materials and equipment and strong relationships with key suppliers.
  • Quality: Specialist staff – from surveyors, occupational therapist partners and all trades.  We have many professional accreditations and X years focusing solely on conversion work.
  • Flexibility: Experience and long term associations give us the capability to quickly respond to emergency work and small or very large access projects of every description.
  • Up to Date: Our seminar and showroom facilities help foster excellent relationships and regular communication with industry professionals and key suppliers/manufacturers.
  • SME Quota: 25% of public sector procurement spend is to go to SMEs by 2015. Whilst having all the benefits of a large size in this specialist sector, we are still well within the limits for SME categorization.


Clients particularly benefit from our design and build capability giving them a one-stop contractor for projects with all the associated cost and time savings.  This is something many of our competitors cannot offer.


EffectAble are trusted and regularly contracted by over a dozen London Boroughs and housing associations including long term contracts and partnering agreements.  Here is a sample of our current design and build contracts:
