Lupino Court, Lambeth, SE11
This new build estate on Lambeth Walk contains a mixture of general needs and shared ownership flats. It was completed in 2002 and required replacement windows because the existing were timber which were both rotten but also did not meet present Building Regulations.
The original timber windows had been painted blue but the decision was made by the residents in conjunction with Peabody to replace with white PVCu windows.
After a successful pilot flat installation the programme was commenced using installation staff previously used by Asset Fineline on other Peabody projects for Vinci facilities because they had received such good reviews from residents.
The specification included a number of properties installed with Teleflex gearing to assist the residents who were less able to use the windows using conventional handles.
To keep the project costs in line with budget, Asset Fineline worked with Vinci to keep the access costs as low as possible whilst maintaining safe working practices by using a variety of access platform methods.
Goddard Place, Islington, N19
A very select gated development. Three blocks of shared ownership flats, which were acquired through a section 106 agreement. These are part of a larger private estate, which was built by St George’s Plc in 1998.
This project called for an extensive leaseholder consultation process which required understanding and good communication skills for those participating in the programme of works undertaken including the requirement to attend face to face meetings with residents to answer questions and allay any concerns relating to the programme and product to be installed.
Special external trim details were agreed with the client to ensure that the aesthetic and visual appearance met with expectations of those responsible for the planning and approval process.
