The existing external wall insulation system on the outside of the building must be replaced because the materials used do not comply with the government’s current safety standards.
We’ve taken expert advice and will be replacing the external insulation system with a system that complies with the current standards and that has been approved by the Building Control Team at Woking Borough Council. We are expecting the replacement to be similar in appearance and that the block will look the same on completion of the work as it does now.
We’ve appointed a consultant, CalfordSeaden, to develop detailed proposals for the works and supervise the work.
When is this happening?
Contractors will be on site from Monday 26 July to begin erecting the scaffolding frame and undertake exploratory works.
We will update this area of the website regularly and we will continue to write to residents with updates.
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org you have any questions or if you are concerned about anything at all. We are here to support you. Subject to Covid-19 safety guidelines, if you would like we can visit you to discuss your needs and concerns.
Possible impact on you
We will try to keep disruption to a minimum but there will be an increased level of activity around the block during the development and carrying out of the works. There will be some loss of light and blocked views, and we will need to restrict access to balconies as these will also be having their parts of the external wall system replaced. Car parking may be reduced too.
We appreciate your continued support and patience as we move forwards with the work.
We would again confirm that the fire strategy for the building remains ‘evacuate in the event of a fire alarm’ and the Fire Marshals will remain on duty whilst the works are underway.
Please continue to follow the fire safety advice previously issued to you.
