Triathlon Homes has residents in four blocks in N07 - Merle Mansions, Calla House, Kotata House and Tayberry House.
The blocks are above 18m in height. The buildings were completed in 2012, and were certified as meeting all building and fire safety regulations at the time they were built.
In 2019, the government produced new guidance to check the safety of the external wall systems in tall buildings. As a result, building management teams across the country must now make sure all tall buildings are compliant with the guidance and safety defects are addressed.
What steps have been taken at N07?
1. EVML has removed all ACM material from Merle Mansions, Calla House, Kotata House and Tayberry House
2. Government funding for the removal and replacement of the ACM material has been confirmed by the MHCLG.
Following the Aluminium Composite Material (ACM) panel removal, the phased programme to install the replacement cladding panels has started 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 has been installed. 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.
If you are worried about the security of the scaffold, please contact Team East Village security team on 020 8221 7013.
