As part of Newham Council’s ongoing regeneration project and the Plaistow New Deal for Communities program, complete refurbishment work on residential towers within the Brooks Road Estate in London, began in May 2008 with a 20 week schedule allocated for each tower.

Main contractors Mullally were chosen to work alongside award-winning architects PRP and façade solution specialists EJ Horrocks on the internal and external refurbishment of Tanner Point and Nicholls Point towers.

Both 14-storey blocks are undergoing major external work and EJ Horrocks appointed LMC Group to provide skilled personnel to work on the enclosure of a total of 112 private balconies/bay window features, and the installation of approximately 5,000m2 new cladding materials according to the design plans.


• Two 14-storey residential towers
• Installation crews worked in collaboration with internal fit out requirements
• 5,000 square metres rainscreen cladding
• Some apartments still occupied


The external design required a specialist cladding solution and the LMC on site team, led by Project Manager John Slaughter and Site Manager Charlie Kakoullis, put together installation crews to work on this prestigious regeneration scheme.

The facade was technically challenging and included faceted cills, pressings and Jamb details to enhance the bay window features.

With installers working on a complex design detail at high elevations, LMC site managers ensured that strict health and safety precautions were in place whilst also they managing delivery schedules.
