Vauxhall Gardens decoration and insulation works

25th July 2015

We are pleased to advise that we are planning to install cavity wall insulation and to redecorate the external and internal communal areas at Vauxhall Gardens.

The decoration works will be carried out by John Scott Decorators and the cavity wall insulation works by Building Renovations. The work is programmed to commence on Monday 27th July or shortly thereafter.

To begin the work scaffolding will be erected where necessary around the perimeter of the property to allow the contractors to safely carry out the works.

In order to install the cavity wall insulation we will need to drill a number of holes from the exterior of the building into the building cavity.

Unfortunately this work is going to be noisy and will be heard throughout the whole building. The work will be carried out between 8am to 5pm and will be completed on the same day to try and minimise the disruption.

As well as the noise there may be some vibrations. We would therefore request that you remove any items from window cills and if possible take down any photos, pictures or ornaments located on the exterior walls the rear extension whilst the works are being carried out.

Andium Homes kindly requests that parents or adults responsible for children who may be visiting take the time to advise their children of the dangers associated with scaffolding and to ensure that they do not play on the scaffolding.

We would also appreciate it if you could ensure that private belongings, for example plant pots are kept away from the building whilst the works are in progress.

Colour Choice

Prior to starting the decoration we have asked John Scott to paint three sample choices of colour within the communal area of each block and on the exterior painted walls as you exit each side of the estate.

We would like to hear from clients as to which colour choice they prefer within each individual block and around the exterior painted areas.

A newsletter and voting slips have been delivered to all addresses this week. We would appreciate your input in indicating your preferred colour choice on your voting slip. When you have completed your preferred colour choice please leave the slip in the post box which will be temporarily installed at the bottom of the staircase within your block.

If possible we would appreciate it if you could make your colour choice and deposit the slip in the post box within one week of receiving the newsletter.

The colour chosen by the majority of residents will be used in each given block and on the exterior walls.

Duration of work 
It is anticipated that the works will take around 10 weeks to complete dependent on the weather. Please be aware of wet paint whilst this work is being carried out.
