Updates for residents

2018 update - work on site

United Living staff and sub-contractors started on site at Iveagh Court from Monday 5 February 2018 with a site office cabin and compound. This compound will be based to the rear of the open area car park and the existing portacabin will be removed.

Key contacts and any questions about the work

United Living will be the main contact for any questions and enquiries about work at Iveagh Court. They will be on site seven days a week between 8am and 5pm to visit or arrange appointments if you have any questions. 

All their staff will have ID badges with logos as shown here and more contact details will be provided by United Living.

United Living will keep you updated on a regular basis during the works. Their website is www.unitedliving.co.uk

Show flat and guest room

During the work we have a respite flat to show finishes, colours, and materials being used for you to come and see. Information on progress will also be available. If during the course of the works you would like a break you are welcome to use the respite flat for a few hours, although other residents will have access as well.

During the work United Living aim to keep disruption to a minimum and we appreciate customers' patience.

Bins and refuge collection will be relocated so it doesn’t interfere with access routes and health and safety requirements for the work. Notices will be provided of any changes.

The refurbishment work includes:

  • Upgrading the heating in every flat
  • Replacing the roof covering
  • Insulating the walls to make every flat more energy efficient, which can help reduce bills
  • Replacing all the windows and doors
  • Replacing the external balcony walls with a modern, glass design
  • Re-building bin stores
  • Installing a modern main entrance, with a lift and wheelchair/pushchair ramp to give better access
  • Improved external lighting for better security at night
  • Replacing the external staircases with a safer, more modern design
  • Installing new fire doors to each flat
  • Installing a new access control system, improving security in the building
  • Redecoration of flats and communal areas as required, including (where necessary) replacement kitchens and bathrooms
  • Upgrading TV reception systems to modern standards.

The work we will carry out will result in an energy efficient, dry and secure home for you to live in. Some of the work will be disruptive and we will work with the chosen building contractor to keep you informed and minimise disruption. We will provide more information about this in the coming months.
