We wanted to give you an update on the refurbishment works which are being carried out to the exterior of Chapter Kings Cross. The works primarily replace the insulation and further improve the building's fire safety qualities and environmental sustainability.
As part of the ongoing process, we wanted to make you aware that we have erected scaffolds at select low levels of our towers to allow our contractors to operate safely and commence the project; this may impact your view slightly if you are living with us at the Mezzanine or First Floor.
We will continue to update you here as to when the works are due to be completed.
Further to our initial email (sent out to you on 28th October 2021), and several other updates that we’ve shared, we want to keep all our residents fully informed as much as we possibly can of any potential disruption throughout the refurbishment process.
From the 4th of April, we erected scaffolding at the front entrance of our property as well as some parts of our Ground Floor common area. We assure you that this will not cause any disruption or changes to the accessibility of the property.
From 20th June 2022, there will be contractors carrying out works to remove & install new cladding panels. These works are phased and will only impact you, on the exterior of your area of the building on programmed dates
The work will occur only during working hours of Monday to Friday, 9 am to 6 pm, and we wanted to apologise in advance for any noise or disturbance. The communal areas will be unaffected and will remain fully open throughout this time.
Additionally, and on various days during the above dates, there will be contractors directly outside your unit on cradles. This element of work should only last for 1 – 2 days intermittently, but during that period between 9 am and 6 pm, you may wish to close your blinds to ensure your complete privacy.
We take this opportunity to remind you to keep yourself informed on our exterior improvements updated by visiting this page but also keeping an eye out for future emails as we continue other works for which we may require access to your room for a short period of time
We want to again reassure you that Chapter Kings Cross is fully compliant and safe to occupy, this is backed up by extensive assessments carried out by an external global fire safety expert and our own retained fire safety team.
These assessments are completely in line with the London Fire Brigade’s guidelines for reviewing and evaluating fire safety in tall buildings in London. For your awareness, we also wanted to reiterate that Chapter Kings Cross has a comprehensive fire management system in place which includes:
- The best fire and smoke detection systems are installed in all rooms and tested weekly
- These are connected to a centralised fire panel device, which enables the immediate pinpointing of any activation
- Heat or smoke detection equipment fitted in every bedroom, living and communal area, basement and utility rooms
- All kitchens and studios contain either an automatic fire suppression system or a fire blanket
- Professional management teams are onsite 24/7
Thank you for your patience and understanding. I hope you are enjoying your time at Chapter Kings Cross, but if you have any questions you can contact us at email@example.com or call 020 3675 9200
