Walkways Roof Improvements Webinar

On Monday 16 May, Lancaster West Neighbourhood Team held an online meeting with residents of Barandon Walk, Testerton Walk and Hurstway Walk on the Lancaster West Estate to discuss the roof improvement works for their blocks. Architects for the Walkways Karacusevic Carson Architects (KCA) were able to present the designs for the roofs and explain the impact this will have on the buildings and homes, and residents had the chance to ask questions.

Your block is entering phase 2 of the refurbishment co-design

To begin the second phase of the refurbishment co-design, we’re inviting all Walkways residents to a webinar and drop-in event about the replacement and upgrade of Barandon Walk, Testerton Walk and Hurstway Walk roofs.

The improvement works will involve installation of new warm-deck energy efficient roofs, new double-glazed atrium rooflights with integrated Automatically Opening Vents (AOVs) to improve ventilation and weather proofing of communal areas, installation of new terrace screens and pergolas, new roof handrails, futureproofing of roof drainage, and installation of steelwork for potential installation of solar PVs.
