Latest update - 1 December 2023
We're pleased to confirm that our end-of-project meeting, which will be held on Tuesday 19 December 2023, at 1 pm.
With the completion of all work and the removal of scaffolding, this meeting is an opportunity for you to address final concerns and ask questions.
Invitations for this meeting have been sent out via email. If you haven’t received an invitation, please email [email protected].
The parking bays in front of Arlington Avenue will remain suspended to allow for storage and the removal of the scaffold.
We’re sorry for the delay with the EWS being issued.
We’re chasing our fire engineer and will share it with you as soon as it’s been issued.
What we’re doing
We’re inserting vertical and/or horizontal fire barriers in the render system and all rendered areas will be over-rendered with a new topcoat.
We’re installing a horizontal barrier to the ‘Shadow gap’ - a new perimeter barrier to the base to balconies and private terraces and a vertical barrier to window reveal.
Along with a fire risk assessment and external wall inspection, an EWS1 survey will be carried out at the end of the project, which’ll be issued to leaseholders and shared owners.
If you want to find out more about EWS1 forms, please visit our EWS page, where you can find an overview of the issues surrounding external wall surveys and the answers to most frequently asked questions.
