SAS Build Ltd gain SafeContractor accreditation

SAS Build Ltd has been awarded accreditation from Alcumus SafeContractor for achieving excellence in health and safety in the workplace. Alcumus SafeContractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises extremely rigorous standards in health and safety management amongst contractors. It is used by thousands of organisations in the UK including SMEs and FTSE 100 companies.

Our application for SafeContractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business.  SafeContractor accreditation will enhance the company’s ability to win new contracts, and its commitment to safety will be viewed positively by its insurers when the company liability policy is up for renewal.

SafeContractor plays a vital role in supporting our clients in meeting their compliance needs, whilst working with their contractors as they progress through the accreditation process.

SAS Build Ltd win exciting new contract in our home town of Swindon.

SAS Build Ltd are extremely proud to have won a contract back in our home town, working with forward Swindon to develop this historic building in Faringdon Road, Swindon.

Swindon shops to be redeveloped

The project consists of a  pair of shops in the centre of Swindon which have been vacant for a number of years are set to be redeveloped to provide new homes and retail space.

Working with Forward Swindon, the council’s regeneration agency,  we will undertake a complete renovation and conversion of the building.  The project will create eight homes and two retail units. The residential properties will be a mix of studios and two-bedroom apartments including one duplex apartment.


SAS Build Managing Director Nick Underwood added: “SAS Build Ltd, is excited to be involved in such an important project for the town and are looking forward to working with Forward Swindon on the development.”


The Old Paint Factory, Wandsworth

SAS Build Ltd have been very busy in London lately working on a re-development of The Old Paint Factory in Wandsworth which backs onto the green open spaces of King George’s Park. The project has been split into two phases.

SAS Build started working on Phase 1 in May 2015.  This first phase involved refurbishing 14 apartments within the Old Paint Factory.  This part of the project completes this week, on time and to budget, with the lucky tenants moving in on Monday morning.

New name, new look, same us!

There has been a lot going on at SAS Facilities Ltd recently we are excited to share the changes that are happening.

Thanks to our rapid growth and increasing demand for diversified services, we have decided to split SAS Facilities Ltd into two separate companies; SAS Rope & Rail Ltd and SAS Build Ltd. This means that both companies can focus on their areas of expertise and we also feel the new names make our businesses easier to understand and market.  Quite simply we do what our name says!



SAS Rope & Rail will specialise in all rope access work, from window cleaning and signage installations to bridge inspections; as well as continuing our long-term projects within the rail infrastructure.



SAS Build Ltd will be responsible for all our construction work from office fit outs to commercial projects and residential developments, and will also look after our building maintenance contracts.


This will in no way effect the service that we provide our customers, and there has been no change in our management, address or contact details.

Here at SAS Build we have many strings to our bow, and whilst we’re probably best known for our rope access projects, there’s a lot more going on behind the scenes.

A core part of our business is building and maintenance work.  From office fit outs to domestic builds, we do it all.

We have recently been working on a local project, completing a 1500 square foot office fit-out at Arclite House in Swindon.  Arclite House is one of the best known buildings in Swindon due to its award winning glass architecture (which by the way our rope access guys keep gleaming), and we are proud to have been chosen to complete this re-fit. 20150321_SAS_ArcliteHouse42

The building was first developed for cellular operations in 2001, and used state of the art materials at that time, including a chillbeam air conditioning system.  As part of the strip out some of these now out-dated systems were removed, and replaced with highly efficient modern alternatives. The look of the new fit out has been brought up-to-date; all building fabric coverings have been removed to leave an industrial look which includes exposed galvanised air conditioning ducting and cable routes.
