SW9 is in the process of going through some very positive changes. The regeneration of Stockwell Park, managed by Network Homes, is now in full swing. During this exciting time we want to keep you up to date about what’s been happening and our plans.
Network Homes is currently working on several buildings. You may be living in these or pass them regularly when you walk around the estate. Here is a quick update on everything that is happening.
Brick work and window installation is now complete up to the third floor.
In the next four weeks externally we will see the remainder of the window installation, brickwork from level 3 through to completion, and works to the roofing membrane to make the building water tight. Internally we will progress screeding works along with first fix mechanical and electrical to all of the walls.
We have also submitted a request to Lambeth planning department to change the energy strategy so that the hot water is supplied via air source heat pumps rather than the old redundant CHP system located in Norton House Energy Centre. This will ensure the building is more sustainable in the long term and is in keeping with the most recent changes to London Plan legislation. While we await the decision from Lambeth planning department we are incurring delays to the programme meaning the project is now currently due to complete in October 2022.
Crowhurst House Lift
Trial holes have recently been dug to carry out final ground investigations before construction begins in April for the new platform lift.
The lift is due to be constructed by end of July and fully commissioned and ready for use at the start of August 2022.
Tyler House renovations are nearly complete with just the last few repairs, defects and inspections taking place in the remaining properties. The courtyard is now fully accessible to all residents, and we are just waiting on the installation of the courtyard benches and the bike racks to be delivered and installed which will hopefully be by the end of April.
The slight refresh of some of the brick work on some of the edges of the building and the regrouting of bricks at the front entrance from white to grey is still outstanding. This will be actioned towards the completion of the project.
Thames Water have visited Tyler House to ensure all meter serial numbers are correctly associated with the correct meters on their system. This hasnow been finalised and all billing queries should now be solved. Residents are asked to get in contact with Thames Water directly if they have any queries regarding their water bill. Access to your water meter can be obtained via the courtyard. To gain access to these please contact SW9’s Estate Services team. They will also be able to provide you with access to your gas meters which are also located within the courtyard of Tyler House. The current gas supplier is with Ecotricity and residents may look for alternative providers if they wish. Residents are asked to get in contact directly with Ecotricity if they have any queries regarding their gas bill.
As most properties have come to the end of their 12-month defect liability period we remind residents to contact the SW9 Repairs team on 020 3007 3170 for any repairs that fall outside of resident responsibility. If you are still within your 12-month defect liability period and would like to report a defect please get in contact with our Aftercares team on 0300 373 3000 (option 3).
