Works are planned between July 20th and 22nd to undertake fire stopping in the riser cupboards in Blocks 1-4. This is being undertaken as part of a number of steps to ensure the development, built in the late 1980s, is compliant with the latest health and safety guidelines relating to fire. Furthermore, this work will serve to provide an additional level of protection to prevent possible entry points to pests such as mice etc.
The work itself will involve ensuring that any gaps where services (water, gas, electricity etc) enter the flats from the riser cupboards are filled with appropriate fire stopping material. This may also necessitate removal of existing non-compliant filling material.
There should be minimal disruption to those in the flats although residents may experience some noise during the hours of work (9am-5pm). We have sought assurances from our contractor that they will be following COVID-19 government working guidelines, which they have confirmed. Houses will not be affected by this work.
