Estate Management Update – Summer

Dear all residents,

We hope everyone is well. As you know, there has been a lot of ongoing maintenance / works taking place in phase 1 (Rain Garden) and phase 2 (The Green). We have invested in various resources and time to ensure the maintenance of the plants and trees are efficient. Along with this, the team have devised various ways including grounds maintenance schedules and tree watering programme to help further assist with this.

The schedules (links below) will be accompanied with a plan which will identify the areas which will be covered over the week. As well as this, the plans detail the times and methods which the grounds operatives will be operating.

In addition to this, we are also working on a document which will highlight all perennials, trees and plants to ensure we sustain a healthy environment for these to grow. We will also be workng with residents to support a large canvas drawing of where all plants are and their description (this is to be confirmed – however if you are interested, please email ChobhamManor1@lqgroup.org.uk.

The property managers will be visiting site but on a limited frequency. However, should you need to speak with them regarding issues, please do not hesitate to contact Arafat Hussain or Sadia Akram on ChobhamManor1@lqgroup.org.uk or by phone on 07971-341-859 / 07572-247-009.

You will also see the caretakers / ground operatives wearing high-visibility vests to ensure a 2M distance is maintained.

Mobile Crane Placement on Peloton Avenue – Update

Dear residents of Chobham Manor,

We have been notified this morning that there has been a mechanical fault with the crane / cherry picker. We anticipate that works will commence from tomorrow, Tuesday 16th 2020. We apologise on behalf of our crane hire company. We will be sure to inform you of any further updates.

Commencing Tuesday 15th June 2020, Taylor Wimpey will be undertaking some improvements to the terrace drainage systems on all of the terraces to remediate some legacy issues with the block. The works will entail the use of specialist access equipment which will be set up on Peloton Avenue. The safe operation of this equipment dictates the closing of Peloton Avenue between Abercrombie road and Villiers Gardens  (see plan below) during the site working hours (8:30AM – 5:00PM).

There will also be a requirement for suspending parking on the West Side of the street. The exact set up position of the machine will move from South to North as the work progresses throughout the duration of the works. Alternative parking has been arranged for residents who may be effected on Abercrombie Road (please see image below).

The scope of works entails the installation of new rainwater outlets and associated making good works. Majority of the work will be done on the terraces, however there is an element of the work that must be undertaken from the working basket of the access plant while oversailing the rear gardens. While this element of work is in progress the rear gardens must be vacated until the all clear is given. Residents will be contacted prior to the commencement of works. Works are expected to be completed within the week, however we are dependant on weather.

We thank you in advance for your assistance with this matter and apologise for the inconvenience this may cause.

Should you have any questions or wish to discuss the matter further, please contact Samantha Hancock, customer relations manager by email at samantha.hancock@taylorwimpey.com by phone on 07970 821 061.

Olympic Park Avenue traffic management plans – Postponed

Dear residents,

Please note: The previously announced traffic management plans on Olympic park avenue have been postponed due to certain equipment not having arrived on site when expected. We will issue further information in due course.

Wishing you a lovely weekend ahead. Please stay safe.

 

Rain Garden / The Green – update

Dear all residents,

We listened to you and we have implemented and will continue to do so, some amazing processes, tools and innovative plans to ensure Chobham Manor remains an iconic location. We have drawn knowledge and support from various stakeholders on the development for which we are grateful. 

Who we are and what we believe in

A core L&Q value is ‘responsibility‘, and with that comes an aim for the Chobham Manor management team and the caretaking team to deliver long, lasting solutions. It is now more than ever that ‘inclusion’, another one of L&Q’s core values has driven us to work collaboratively and draw strength from our differences.

Your caretaking team and the management team are driven to deliver a consistent and unique service. We measure our progress and achievements with one integral tool – measure the impact we have on the development and the residents who call it their home.

What we have done this week (in pictures)

The grounds team who you have met, consisting of Zee and Chris worked throughout the week to work through a process of eliminating tasks such as weeding, raking and watering plants and trees. Please note, all works carried out here were done inline with the government guidelines of adhering to social distancing. Water hoses are being utilised through out the morning and into the afternoon – thus allowing trees and plants to soak in as much water as they can during this heat.

 

Tuesday 2nd – Zee weeded phase 2 near plant areas and benches.

As Zee’s first project on phase 1 on Tuesday, he weeded the entrie play area and it looks amazing.

Facing phase 3 these plants were watered on Tuesday by Zee. As you can see the colour contrast is coming through.

This area, along with others needed weeding. This was carried out by Zee.

Weeds were cut by Chris and the external part of these houses look amazing.

Seating area in phase 2 was weeded and plants were watered.

Phase 1 trees watered. Chris did so following a plan and using his own initiative.

Zee cut back the overgrowing edges to reveal the boundary for a nice finish.

What’s to come?

The above images are an example of team work, creating a plan, supporting one another and most importantly understanding why they are doing it. This behaviour will be showcased throughout. This is the beginning. Next week there will be several things across the development (namely the rain garden and the green) we want to achieve. Once they have been completed, we will let you know.

Wishing you the very best weekend ahead. Please stay safe.

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

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.
