Scaffold

Once the scaffold has been erected, Lewisham Homes consultants Baily Garner, and the Breyer Group will complete a high level inspection of the building. The purpose of the high level inspection is to take a closer look at the building so that we can ensure that

Lewisham Homes is only completing works that are required.

Windows

When the works commence Breyer will contact you and arrange to Inspect your windows to determine if they require replacement. If your windows do require replacement, we will manufacture the windows, and then contact you once more to arrange a convenient date to install.

During the time that the windows are being manufactured, Breyer will continue to complete all the other building works that have been agreed with Lewisham Homes.

Progress

As you are well aware we have recently erected scaffolding around the buildings and carried out a detailed inspection to the high level parts. During this inspection, we looked at the state of the existing tiles and inspected the condition of the timber below, in order to see if the roof needs refurbishment or replacement.

During the week commencing Monday 30th March 2015 we will be attaching hoists to the existing scaffold of all blocks. This is in order to allow for the commencement of complete roof renewal works which will follow shortly after.

We are happy to inform you that during April we will be commencing with the following works;

  • Asbestos Removal
  • Replacement of Guttering
  • All new Fascia and Soffit Replacement
  • Brickwork and Concrete Repairs
  • Window Surveys
  • Pointing to Masonry

Site Compound

We are looking to increase our temporary site compound to include an office and more efficient welfare facility so in order to have a site presence at all times.

What happens next

Following completion of works we will arrange a handover inspection with our consultants, Baily Garner.

Block representatives will be invited to participate in this inspection and will be provided with details nearer the time.
