Firstly, we would like to thank all our residents and the local community for bearing with us whilst we carried out the demolition of the West stair core works.
Tonbridge Walk was closed for 6 months and has now been reopened as a public walkway as of Monday 18th September 2017.
You may have noticed that we have been progressively removing the scaffolding to the East elevation as reported in last months edition. This is now complete and we have now removed part of the South elevation scaffold. There has been some scaffold left due to the location of the crane and the haki staircase, which has planned removal for the first quarter of next year.
Our target date to complete the demolition works of the West stair is 27th September 2017, and the works are currently at level 1 to ground floor. You may have heard noisy works being carried out later than usual. There will be noisy works up until 20:00hrs on weekedays and at weekends until 16:00hrs until the finish date above. Noisy works will re-commence as of 21st September 2017. Due to exams in the Camden Centre, we put these works on hold.
The basements continue to progress well with decorations to the blockwork walls and ceilings completed. There are areas of Basement 2 which will require a resin paint. This paint is laid as it provides a hard wearing substrate in aggressive environments with chemical spillages or frequent traffic on the floors.
There have been numerous pieces of plant that has been delivered ready for installation. Sections of the AHU (Air Handling Unit) has been delivered, and this plant will be used to regulate and circulate air as part of a heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning.
Between levels 9 and 10 of the new steelworks frame we are currently installing the curtain wall frame work. The frame work consists of sections of aluminium which are placed and fixed onto pre-installed brackets. This stick like framework is lowered into place using a Spider Crane. These pieces come pre-made from Germany.
