Construction update – site remobilisation

Dear Residents,

We are writing to give you an update on the construction works taking place on Chobham Manor and most importantly the actions we have taken to ensure the continued health, safety and wellbeing of our workers and the people living on and around Chobham Manor.

Taylor Wimpey have gone above and beyond the current guidelines and have implemented a number of different initiatives across site and in the surrounding areas concerning Covid-19. These include-

a) Multiple cleaning stations throughout the site and the compound area for operatives to use.

b) A strict adherence to 2 metre Social Distancing rules (unless this is not possible due to task specific actions and if this is the case then additional measures are being taken including face masks and face shields)

c) Staggered break times are in operation and the welfare facilities have been altered to ensure social distancing takes place within the welfare areas

d) Operatives have undergone a new Covid-19 related Induction, and all risk assessments and method statements have been amended to include new safe working practices in light the current situation

e) Re-routing of pedestrian traffic management to ensure one way systems in place where possible and multiple passing points in place

f) We have implemented staggered starting times to remove a build up of operatives at the entrance to site and compound

g) We have obtained permission from the VeloPark to use their car park for vehicles however we are actively encouraging the use of sustainable transport such as cycling along with walking to work in the first instance.

h) Site hours have changed to 7am to 7pm. This to assist in easing peak time use of TFL network in conjunction to the staggered start times, respectively. In addition with aim to recovering time lost while construction activities was suspended.

 

Due to the time lost and the anticipated further time required to complete certain construction activities due to our implemented social distancing measures, our anticipated completion dates have moved. These are now as follows;

 

  • Phase 3E – October 2020
  • Phase 3A – January 2021
  • Phase 3D – April 2021
  • Phase 3C – September – November 2021
  • Phase 3B – November 2021
  • Phase 4 – March 2022

 

Currently, we are due to commence the final stage of pre-bore and piling on Phase 3B next to Derny Avenue the first week of June and it is anticipated that all work will be complete by the end of June. This will complete all piling operations on site.

On 3E Scaffold strikes within the podium are pending with the completion of brickwork to outer elevations.

3A brickwork commencing to all elevations along with cladding to mansards.

3D Scaffold erection is well underway along with brickwork progressing generally throughout the phase.

On Phase 4, the RC frame is well underway with commencement of underground services including district heating are imminent.

We would like to personally thank you for your on-going support and patience through this unpresidented time, we sincerely wish good health to you, your friends and your families.

Be smart keep 2 metres apart!

Kind Regards

Key worker permit – NHS staff only

Dear residents,

I want to firstly express a sincere thank you on behalf of L&Q and PCM and I am sure the entire country too, for your undivided attention and efforts to ultimately save lives. As a thank you to our front line NHS staff, including but not limited to:

a) Doctors

b) Midwives

c) Nurses

d) Ambulance care assistant

We have put in place a system whereby NHS staff can obtain Chobham manor PCM permits to park in bays of the following category:

  •  Non-marked bays

We understand that time is short, and for that very reason we have tried to keep the verification process simple but effective to ensure we maintain the developments upkeep but more importantly, that we do our part for you.

a) Email us at ChobhamManor1@lqgroup.org.uk with some form of NHS ID as a picture

b) We will then draw up the permit with a unique code so it cannot be duplicated and send it out to you as soon as possible.

c) Simply place the permit on your dash and have no worries while you go ahead with your day.

It is with the support of all parties; Chobham manor residents association, PCM, Taylor Wimpey and of course all the residents of the development that we are able to manifest small but impactful ways to improve everyone’s situation.

 

Best wishes

 

L&Q and PCM.

NEW – Call in session

An integral part of Chobham Manor is to maintain a thriving community. Amidst the current position we all find ourselves in, L&Q, after discussions with the CMRA have decided to hold the first video / call in session on the Wednesday, 3rd June 2020.

This will serve as an opportunity for all residents to have a 1-on-1 discussion with their management team on a number of subjects which you require some clarity or updates on. This is entirely similar to our ‘drop-in sessions’ held at the office, except, we will be carrying these out virtually.

Flyers will be posted on the front entrance door of each block.

Following COVID 19 -The local site office remains closed to the public.

Grounds Maintenance

We will be working with Taylor Wimpey over the coming weeks to tidy the rain garden, removing weeds and mulching around the trees. We will be concentrating on watering all of the trees and the bedded areas with immediate effect. Unfortunately, there are some trees that have died and will need replacing along with some plants that have been identified. A programme of works for the Grounds Maintenance is currently being put together with the assistance of Taylor Wimpey and some residents of Chobham Manor to ensure a more comprehensive and consistent approach going forward.
