Upgrading your Communal Heating

From: May 2021

Until: around August 2021

Who to contact

Your heating works contractors are G&D Higgins. Your Resident Liaison Officer (RLO) is Andre Ferreira. Contact him by phone on 020 8863 0003, or visit him at the site office in the courtyard between Springwater, Richbell, and Boswell House.

Your heating works project manager is James Wainwright. Contact him by phone on 07970 908950 or by email at james.wainwright@camden.gov.uk.

What to expect

Construction has now started on the first part of the works at Tybalds - heating upgrades to provide a more efficient and energy saving communal heating system for this part of the estate.  

We are replacing the main boiler house under Springwater with a new one, and removing the boiler room under Boswell House. The new boiler house will serve all 6 blocks listed above. At the moment these blocks are being served by temporary boilers, and we will be replacing them with high efficiency condensing boilers. These will provide more consistent heating and hot water supply for all the flats.

The works are only in the boiler house and we won’t need access into your individual homes.

Noise disruption

There won’t be any noisy works going on at Chancellors Court, Babington Court, or Devonshire Court at this stage. You might hear the works at Boswell House, Richbell, and Springwater though, between 9am-4pm Monday-Friday until around 09 July. The noise will include drilling and welding sounds as we demolish the old pipework and construct the new pipework at Boswell House, Richbell, and Springwater.

What's next?

We have written to all Tybalds residents about a meeting to introduce your contractors and your project manager, where you will be able to ask any questions you have.

What's next?
