(Completion in Blocks B and C (Rosemary and Lavender) is currently estimated for October and Block D (Sage) in December)

 

Dear Customers,

Meteorological spring has begun and London has basked in a few weeks of glorious record breaking sunshine. The warmer than usual climate has increased productivity and we are now just a couple of weeks from completing the full concrete frame of the project. Blocks B and C are topped out, as are the links between Blocks B and C and Blocks C and D. Just a few levels of Block D remaining. We currently have 3 separate teams installing the cladding system and so far over 500 cladding panels have been installed and about 40 balconies.

The internal fit-out is closely following the cladding installation so underfloor heating, partitioning, first fix electrics and comfort cooling all progressing well. Just over 250 contractors on site every day.

Midgard, our contractor, has just been vetted under the Considerate Contractor’s Scheme and was rated in each category as either excellent or exemplary. This rating assessment considers interface with neighbours, individual operatives, management and most importantly site safety.

In recent months, the development has attracted considerable interest in London, specifically with regards the complexities and opportunities in building over and close to live rail infrastructure. You may be interested in the following video;

In the meantime, if you have any queries whatsoever, do not hesitate to contact Amy – amy@ijmland.co.uk. Finally, Amy is still waiting for some buyers to respond with regards their choice of wardrobe colours. Please respond as soon as you can if you have not done so already.
