Fairview Industrial Park Quarterly Newsletter – March 2020

Estate House Redevelopment / Expansion Update

 

The redevelopment of Estate House has now been completed, and the Estate Management is now fully operational within.

As you can see from the photograph, the new building is significantly larger than the old, incorporating a second floor. There is a larger Board room to accommodate meetings.

The new building complies with modern building regulations and is equipped with solar panels and air source heat pumps to reduce its carbon footprint. The building is equipped with CCTV, and adequate off road parking has been provided.

The first floor is now occupied by the estate’s security, Security Projects UK Ltd.  This is an important evolvement, as the presence of security on the estate is an integral part of the management of the estate.  Occupying the same office will facilitate and enhance the ability of the Estate Management and Security to work together as a team, thus continuing to provide a comprehensive service to the businesses on the estate.

EBO Design & Build Ltd., and Essex County Cleaners Ltd., also now occupy offices in Estate House, and you can obtain details of the facilities/services that can be provided by visiting the Estate’s website www.fairviewindustrialpark.co.uk

Covid-19

As the Covid-19 epidemic continues to dominate our personal and business lives, we would like to take this opportunity to wish you, your families, staff, customers and suppliers all our best wishes during this incredibly difficult time. Unless we are instructed otherwise by the government, the Estate will continue to be run as normal. Security will be as important as ever, especially if further business lockdown measures are introduced, and so will be maintained at current levels and normal site cleaning will continue. However, where possible we will limit other projects in order to assist in the on-going social distancing efforts and to control the service charge costs incurred over the coming months.

The Estate Management team are being encouraged to work from home where possible but will be available by phone or email when not in the estate office.

We fully expect that a number of business on the estate will operate remotely or at least with reduced workforces and as the estate is quieter we would ask that you keep an eye on your neighbours property and report anything unusual to Security.

Once again, we wish you all the best for the months ahead.

March 2020 has seen Roadtechs complete Phase 3 and  Phase 5 of essential maintenance and safety improvement works to Manor Way Business Centre, Orwell Close and Marsh Way/Barlow Way junction

 

The works, which form part of the ongoing infrastructure management programme, were undertaken out of hours to minimise disruption and inconvenience to the business community.

 

Projects awaiting completion 

 

Currently Roadtechs along with the Fairview Industrial Park’s Management Team are undertaking an asset review of the footway and carriageway network throughout the estate. The resultant condition survey will be analysed and future programmes of work starting with Phase 6 in late spring / early summer 2020 will be prioritised based on the information collated.

 

 

 

Transformation of Marsh Way Gateway Roundabouts:

 

You may have noticed work taking place on the roundabouts this month. Thanks to Havering Council and the London Riverside BID, the two roundabouts are being transformed with a planting scheme that, once mature, will provide a beautiful and natural entry point to our industrial park.

Once again the London Riverside BID area achieved a Silver Gilt London in Bloom Award and this project is part of the effort to achieve a Gold Medal.

Before:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

During: 12000 plugs and plants to lay out!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Each roundabout, at approximately 33m in diameter, will be planted with low-level, intermingled plants, using a matrix of grasses and salt tolerant herbaceous perennials to achieve a look that creates a blend between ‘naturalness’ and native species, and provides a long season of flowering and nectar sources.  The informal planting scheme will require cutting back just once a year, and so will have interest all year round, including in the autumn and winter months when structural plants that are dying back will continue to provide interest, supplying materials for nests and winter hibernation.

 

MATCH FUNDING IS SOUGHT FROM THE LONDON RIVERSIDE BID FOR ALL PROJECTS
