Coade Court - building safety

We’ll be posting the latest news for Coade Court, Stockwell customers here, so please bookmark this page to stay up-to-date on the work we’re doing to keep everyone safe.

Latest update - 23 May 2022

Upcoming fire stopping works

Following recommendations made in the Type 1 FRA, we will soon start ‘fire stopping works’ internally to communal areas. In addition to this, further intrusive Type 4 investigations by our new Fire Engineers will commence soon, earliest estimate is June 2022. There could be some additional remedial works to come from these investigations. We're exploring every option for the funding of this, including pursuing Rydon.

Our Home Ownership Team have already sent pre-engagement communication in relation to communal door entry access control, security systems and the fire protection system.

Section 20 consultation notices will be issued in due course, so we meet the requirements of Section 20 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985 (as amended by Section 151 of the Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002).

Please be assured that we’ll do everything we can to recover these costs from third parties (including any responsible contractors), from government funding or from any other available source, rather than recovering costs from our customers.

Previous intrusive surveys

Hyde originally instructed a Type 4 survey to be completed in early 2021. While these were carried out and received early last year, there were a number of delays and complications. What was received was closer to a ‘findings report’ rather than what we’d expect from a Type 4 survey. The report simply didn’t contain the detail and clear recommendations expected in an intrusive survey. It therefore doesn’t offer the guidance we’d require from a Type 4 report, hence the procurement of new Fire Engineers. Residents will NOT be charged for these surveys.

Future communication and messaging

We'll be updating this Building Safety Page with all relevant updates for your property and what steps we're intending to take. This page will generally be updated on a monthly basis, but also as and when any new information becomes available.
