Triathlon Homes has residents in three blocks of N02 - Karner House, Meander House and Zeller House.
All of these blocks are above 18m in height. The buildings were completed in 2012, and met all building and fire safety regulations at the time they were built.
In 2019, changes were made to building regulations. As a result, building management teams across the country must now make sure all buildings are compliant with these new regulations.
What steps have been taken at N02?
1. EVML has removed all ACM material from Karner House, Meander House and Zeller House
2. Government funding for the removal of the ACM material has been confirmed by the MHCLG via the Building Safety Fund
What happens next?
Following the Aluminium Composite Material (ACM) panel removal, the phased programme to install the replacement cladding panels will start later this month and is expected to complete in December.
The works involve replacing the insulation, firestops and subframe works and then installing the new panels. The programme across the 11 buildings involved will be carried out in stages to minimise disruption to residents.
We will be in regular contact with residents in the buildings where works will take place. As the project moves forwards, updates from the contractor will be shared via the teams at Triathlon Homes.
The first phase of scaffolding will start to be installed from Monday 24 May and, when works begin, the contractor working hours will be Monday to Friday 08:00 – 17:00. We will try and avoid Saturday working where possible, but if required this will be limited to 08:00 – 13:00.
Contractors will be using parking bays within the undercroft parking for storage. These parking bays will be surrounded by construction hoarding and will be kept secure.
Should you need to contact the on-site team out of hours, please call our Team East Village security team on 020 8221 7013.
