Zebra News

LATE MAY BANK HOLIDAY

Our office will be closed on Monday 29 May 2017. Our emergency repairs service will operate throughout this period.

Enjoy the holiday!

 

MAJOR WORKS

Work to replace the roof covering at Jeannine House, Upper Montagu Street, W1 has started with the erection of scaffolding on 22 May. Re-roofing will start on 5 June. The work will take 8/12 weeks to complete. We’ll also be carrying out other external repairs and redecoration. The scaffolding is alarmed.

 

Work to the stairwells at 30 Chalcot is progressing well but taking longer than hoped. Essentially there is much more plasterwork that needs replacing and we are also renewing the entry system, IT cabling and emergency lighting. The plastering should complete by the end of May and redecoration should take place in early June. We’re really very sorry that it’s taking such a long time.

 

RAMADAN

Ramadan begins this weekend and we wish all our Muslim residents “Ramadan Mubarak”.
