Major works to buildings

All of Zebra’s buildings are old – some older than others. And that is part of what we are. Residents get the opportunity to live in great areas in typical London houses from generally the nineteenth century. But that also means that there are always repairs to be carried out.

At Carleton Road we have a small roof to recover and ongoing repairs, yet to be scheduled, to repair damage caused by nearby trees. The trees have now been removed and we are waiting for the ground to settle down. The building is monitored regularly.

At Sentosa we are carrying out repairs to the roof at the rear where there is damage to the leadwork causing water to get into the building. We’ll also be reducing the size of the trees.

At Impala we are altering the guttering to the front buildings in Chalcot Square and replacing some windows.

At Jerome we’ve moved the laundry room in preparation for renewing the main boilers next year.
