External Works At Ongar House

We are writing to update you with regards to the external works being carried at the front of Ongar House. Works are due to commence Monday 3rd August and should take approximately 5 weeks to complete, weather permitting.

Access

The works being carried out are predominately to the front of your property and will therefore limit your access to your front door. We kindly request that you use the rear access through your garden as an alternative arrangement during these works. This will allow us to work more efficiently and ensure your safety. If you have any problems with this arrangement, please contact the Lovell team who will arrange a visit to discuss the possible options with you.

Deliveries/Visitors

We have been in contact with the local postman and agreed that all post will be delivered as normal with the site team assisting to provide safe, we will do the same with courier or larger deliveries during this period of work. If you are arranging any deliveries out of hours, please ensure you provide clear instructions.

With regards to visitors, we will erect signage to show visitors the alternative routes.

Ilford House – Bin Store Works

We write to inform you that works have commenced to construct a temporary hoarding in the ground floor corridor to provide a physical barrier between site and residents. This is to complete works for the new bin stores replacing the facilities that are currently in this space. Works should take approximately 4 weeks to complete.

We ask that you still use the temporary bin store area Lovell provided last year, at the rear of Ilford House on the corner of Westcliff House and Dove Road.

We’re Back

Following the close down period, due to the pandemic, we re-opened at the beginning of May after implementing procedures in accordance to Government guidelines. As you can imagine, managing a construction site whilst trying to maintain these measures is challenging and restrictive.

We are constantly reviewing measures and making changes wherever possible to keep our workforce and neighbours safe, and to progress the remaining works as quickly as possible.

If you have any queries regarding this message or about the site, please feel free to contact Alexandra Robins via email Alexandra.Robins@lovell.co.uk or on 0208 731 3800.
