NBCA - Finalist

Hatfield & Gerrard transformation project shortlisted for two award at this year’s National Building and Construction Awards

We are delighted to confirm that United Living Property Services, in partnership with Lewisham Homes, has been shortlisted for two award’s in this year’s prestigious National Building and Construction Awards 2021.

The team are finalists in the ‘Best Community Engagement’ and ‘Project of the Year £10 million to £25 million’ categories. The shortlisting is a testament to the collaborative ethos United Living Property Services, Lewisham Homes, and all of our supply chain partners have embodied throughout this project.

United Living Group was commissioned by Lewisham Homes to deliver the Hatfield Close and Gerrard House fire safety transformation project, undertaking emergency works with scaffolding erected. United Living commenced on site in October 2017, with the dangerous cladding on all three blocks successfully removed by December 2017.

Following the removal of dangerous cladding, the three blocks have been subject to an extensive refurbishment and recladding programme which includes the installation of smoke detectors, sprinkler systems, upgraded windows, new doors and balconies & structural works.

The new cladding is designed to be highly fire resistant. The tiles are made from terracotta and have an A1 safety rating, the highest achievable. The supports and insulation behind the cladding have also been given an A1 rating.

On this project, United Living Property Services are working in close partnership with Lewisham Homes, Michael Dyson Associates, Novo Facades, 4i Solutions and the London Fire Brigade.

The full shortlist is now live on the National Building and Construction Awards website here.

Best of luck to our United Living Property Services team & Lewisham Homes.
