Diamond Special Works has delivered a £1.7m contract which has overhauled two 20-storey residential towers in Battersea, London.
Appointed by Wandsworth Council, the team was responsible for the external and internal refurbishment works at Sparkford and Selworthy House, which house a total of 160 flats.
The project involved repairing concrete and brickwork on the facades and upgrading all windows. The roofs of 34 extruding balconies were replaced and repairs carried out to 160 narrow balconies as well as the buildings’ two main roofs.
Inside the towers, Diamond Special Works redecorated common areas and installed suspending ceilings, lighting and new doors.
Paul Hoskins, Managing Director of Diamond Special Works, said: “This project has delivered significant improvements for residents, creating a more welcoming external and internal environment.
“The majority of the works involved working at height with extensive scaffolding, so required stringent management and safety measures. Minimising disruption for the buildings’ residents was crucial. We appointed a resident liaison officer to make sure people were kept informed of the works with regular updates in writing as well as meetings in a local hall.”
Diamond Special Works has worked with Wandsworth Council for more than decade, delivering a range of refurbishments across the borough. The team previously upgraded six residential towers at Alton estate and delivered a window renewal programme at Convent Estate.
