Beech Gardens project - Statement Nov 2013

From the BEO:
Dear Residents 
Barbican (Beech Gardens) Podium – Background to the Water proofing project 
The Podium has leaked for over thirty years in a number of areas across the estate and many remedies have been attempted to find ways to cure the problem. In the main these repairs just pushed the water elsewhere; anyone who has seen the number of drip trays in our car parks will understand the scale of the problem. After several years of water ingress into the Virgin Active leisure complex, the COL were threatened with legal action. 
Members of the Corporation agreed the expenditure to cure the problem, but insisted that the technical solution should be guaranteed and the chosen methodology should provide the specification for future repairs across the Estate. For residents that are interested in the timelines of the project please contact your House Officer. 
Eddie Stevens
Housing Services Director
