Why are the works being done?

The work is being funded from Central Government to remove the combustible façade on the building and reinstatement of the façade with an appropriately fire rated material.

What's next?

We are starting the work at Glynde Reach, then we will move on to Bramber and then finally Gatesden.

Week commencing 15/08/22

EWI installation  to South and West elevation:

Some noisy works but won't be constant. Works will include fixing of boards to the brickwork and  movement of materials on site and up the scaffold.

Masonary repairs to South and West elevation:

We may have to repoint and undertake repairs on brickwork. The work is likely to cause noise and dust throughout the week but won't go on to long based on surveys which shows repairs are not extensive. The work will involve racking out of existing mortar and in some cases the installation of reinforced helibars into some areas on the walls.

Deliveries and loading of materials:

This will take place during the week and may cause some disruption and create the need for temporary walkways around the site. This is likely to cause some disruption to residents at ground floor level. 

Removal of existing Cladding Panels and copings
(Top floor fo Glynde Reach):

Some noisy works and dust as panels are removed. The work involves the removal of the existing external wall system by the removal of existing fixings.
