Proposals to Refurbish Brentford Towers
And create 17 new homes
Hounslow Council have put together a proposed programme of external repair works to the six high rise blocks known as Brentford Towers.
The blocks were built between 1968 and 1978 and the concrete is spalling, a natural process whereby the steel bars corrode and the concrete cracks and bulges.
The aims of the work are to repair and protect the existing structure and replace existing windows and boilers.
In addition to this balconies for 1 bed flats will be enclosed to create winter gardens and any hidden asbestos will be removed. The existing entrance lobbies will be remodelled. The upper ground floors will be remodelled to provide 17 new homes using available spaces although this will require a separate planning application being submitted.
It is intended that building start in winter 2017 with each block taking around 9 months to complete.
Two public engagement events have already happened. The remaining ones take place at the Ground floor meeting room in Cornish House.
On Wednesday 17 May, 3-7pm:
Residents from 1-88 Boulton House & 1-88 Wicksteed House
The consultation ends on Monday 5 June 2017
