Electrical contractors (Artek Electrical) will be on-site 1st-2nd December to undertake maintenance and upgrade works.
This work will include: repair of broken lamp-post and uplighters in central bed, repair of broken security sensor lighting, annual emergency lighting testing and certification, repair and recertification to meet latest safety risk guidance, addition of new garden uplighters to the wall areas by Blocks 2 & 3 and raised river wall garden area – and as many will be pleased to hear – the switch-on of our seasonal lighting display.
The contractors will be working in all areas across the development. Disruption should be minimal, although residents in Blocks 1-4 may experience some noise of drilling during working hours and communal area lighting may be temporarily disrupted. All efforts will be taken to ensure the later is completed during daylight hours to avoid stairwells being left in the dark.
Contractors have advised they will be following government COVID secure guidelines.
As highlighted in our previous communication, from the 1st December 2020, PWRA will begin commencing enforcement.
From 1st December 2020, any vehicle without a valid PWRA parking permit displayed parking in a visitors bay may be subject to enforcement action including: parking fines, removal or reporting to local authorities. In the case of vehicles without a permit that are parked in assigned resident bays the respective property owner will be contacted.
Tenants who have not been issued with parking permit should contact their landlord. All property owners were contacted previously with details on how to collect their permits. For further information email firstname.lastname@example.org
As stated in our previous communication essential maintenance works to clean the gutters will commence on the 25th of November. As a result of this, debris and rubbish will fall specially on some parking areas. Contractors also need these areas to be vacated to use ladders and a cherry picker. We therefore ask the owners of vehicles located in the unsheltered areas in the blocks to move them by 8am please.
Blocks 2 and 3 on Wednesday the 25th November (by 8am).
Blocks 1 and 4 on Thursday the 26th November (by 8am).
You can move your vehicle to any of the visitor parking designated areas around the estate. If you have any questions or are struggling to find a temporary space you can contact Roberto Saas email@example.com who is the director coordinating this work.
In response to several reported incidents of blocked gutters, a contractor (Sam’s Gutters) has been selected and maintenance works to clear and repair all gutters on the development will commence on Wednesday the 25th of November 2020.
Two or three workmen will be on site during this operation and all will be complying with government COVID-19 guidance as well as necessary health and safety regulations. This will include use of a cherry picker.
The proposed schedule will be as follows:
Blocks 2 and 3 with a cherry picker and ladders (Properties 20-43)
Blocks 1 and 4 with a cherry picker and ladders (Properties 1-10 & 53-62)
Houses (north side) with ladders (Properties 44-52)
Houses (south side) with ladders (Properties 11-19)
Contingency / completion.
Access to rear of properties
Houses and some flats on the ground floor may be requested access through their property by contractors to back patios in order to access the gutters on the east and west sides of the state. The contractor will be taking appropriate COVID secure precautions but if anyone has concerns and is not comfortable to provide access or is currently self-isolating please email firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are a house occupant, or a flat occupant on the ground floor, we will be in touch shortly on the specific access information required to carry out these works.
According the schedule we request vehicle owners to park somewhere else for a working day while contractors carry out the work. Please utilise the visitor bays in the first instance. If you are unable to locate a suitable space, we will advise you of temporary parking locations.
High speed fibre broadband provider Hyperoptic will be on-site on 18-19th November to install FTTP (Fibre to the Premise) to the houses. This service is already available to flats.
All house owners have been contacted and asked whether they are willing to grant permission to install the fibre and advised of any preparation they need to undertake. Tenants of houses should contact their landlord to confirm if they are affected.
The work will involve lifting of BT manholes on the development as well as accessing the garages of houses in order to run the fibre connection through existing BT ducts. Disruption should be minimal outside of the affected houses. We have sought assurance from Hyperoptic that all work will be done following government COVID-19 guidance, which they have confirmed.
Any enquiries relating to Hyperoptic relating to getting service should be directed to them. Please do not engage the engineers directly whilst they are onsite. We have been asked to respect social distancing guidelines and they will be unlikely to be able to answer specific questions anyway.
