Lawtech completed the removal and replacement of combustible cladding and balcony decking at Parr Court in Pitsea, Basildon.
Notting Hill Genesis
August 2022 - March 2023
Parr Court is part of a larger residential development owned by Notting Hill Genesis. This development includes Aragon & Cleves Court, two mid-rise blocks where Lawtech had previously completed cladding remediation works. Parr Court required intrusive investigations to the gable ends to determine build ups. Investigations confirmed the presence of ACM, which had to be removed as part of the works.
Due to the buildings being occupied residential blocks, residents had to be considered throughout, meaning restricted working hours and careful management of H&S.
Thorough communication was required with the residents throughout, including open days, literature, posters on windows, etc. to ensure that they fully understood the needs to avoid using their balconies. To further improve security, Heras fencing was in place to prevent access onto the balconies.
One resident was concerned about their balcony being restricted while the scaffold was in place. Our Assistant Customer Service Manager arranged a visit to their home to explain the works and reassure them, which proved to be very helpful.
Lawtech always aim to fill labour provision from within the local area where possible, providing employment opportunities to people from the locality of the project. At Parr Court, we sourced three members of the site team from the local area, including the Site Manager.
A Lawtech-branded advent calendar was hand-delivered to residents’ flats. The rear of the advent calendar features details of our 24/7/365 customer care & emergency phone lines.
