Project Progress

In the meantime, we have also:

  • Undertaken compartmentation firestopping within the communal areas through the original developer, Bellway. 
  • Our consultants and contractors have attended your block in preparation for the main remediation works. This included further detailed survey work, where we opened up further and extensive parts of the building to examine the construction behind the cladding. This additional preparatory work has helped us to finalise the scope of remedial works that are required for your block.
  • Recently completed the fire alarm installation to alert all residents of a fire now the blocks are on simultaneous evacuation. Final testing has been completed to the fire alarm system which is now fully operational. The waking watch service shall continue during this period.
  • In ongoing discussions with the original developer, Bellway, about their contribution to the defective fire safety remediation works that are required, including those firestopping works within the flats.

What to expect in the coming weeks:

  • On-going negotiations with our principal contractor, Kier are taking place to resolve any project risks and to agree the main programme.
