New Updates - 04/08/2022
- An information bundle has been submitted by Guildmore contractors to project consultants CHPK . CHPK and Kings Chelsea are reviewing the documents to ensure the proposals minimise the disruption to residents. A meeting between CHPK/Kings Chelsea/Guildmore is due to occur shortly to discuss this in more detail.
- CHPK have received confirmation that the funding application will be submitted to a DLUHC funding board on the 24th of August. We would expect a final decision to be made about how much funding will be provided during this meeting, and CHPK to be notified of the outcome shortly thereafter. Kings Chelsea will then receive funding contracts/agreements to review and sign before funds are drawn down.
- Based on the current timetable, we envisage to be in funds circa December 2022. Kings Chelsea will discuss whether it would be preferable to start works in the new year so that no scaffolding is erected in part over Christmas.
- The contractor previously submitted a programme of circa 84 weeks. As part of the completion of the contractors’ design, Guildmore has confirmed that they can improve on their programme, reducing it to a total of 70 weeks to complete the works. This represents a significant time saving on the total project duration.
