External Redecorations: Week 13

We're at the end of week 13 (w/c 20th Oct) of the external redecoration project. Here is an update from Steven Murray.   Please do let Steve or Sheila know if you are aware of anything which can be improved upon with the work, and please do attend the walk around Steve mentions if you can:

<here is> a rundown on the last couple of weeks on the re-decs for you to share on your blog.

The second stage of Ben Jonson is now 80% complete, Sheila is going to send out a letter to the residents of this section to invite them for a walk around with me and the project team to go through any issues before I sign of as complete, this will be for Wednesday 12th November at 2pm. Scaffold on the north elevation of BenJ for the final stage will start being erected from this coming Monday to complete up to the far eastern end of the block and painters will be starting on common areas and balconies from the middle of next week. A newsletter from the contractor for the residents of the final stage will also be out with info of contact details and programme.

Breton House is now also 80% complete and mostly just the eyebrow windows to do from scaffolding, as above we will have a resident walk around, this will follow at 3pm.

We of course have the little section of windows that are over Golden Lane that need to bridge the road, we are chasing for the date when we can close the road over a weekend so this can be erected.

The project has gone very well so far so fingers crossed it stays this way now we are approaching the home straight – of course this is a team effort and the residents have been fantastic with accommodating the painters and helping with making their appoints for leading edges on doors etc….so pass on my thanks for this so far.

Just let me know if there's any questions

Regards, Steve
