Brief: Refurbishment of tower blocks
Wellington Close is a residential tower recladding, lower block over cladding and reroofing project. When completed, Wellington Close will be one of the first full leasehold tower retrofit project in the UK. Wellington Close is located in central Walton-on-Thames, close to the recently redeveloped town centre. The site is situated along Hepworth Way and Bridge Street, and the blocks sit upon a spacious and well landscaped 0.19-hectare site.
The property was constructed in 1964/5 and comprises 3 no. 10-storey blocks with adjacent 2-storey spur blocks which extend from the base of each tower. The blocks are well-spaced within the site and provide parking within the under croft of each building. The tower blocks provide 4 no. flats per floor arranged symmetrically around a central lift and stair core, whilst the spur blocks provide 8 no. flats arranged over two storeys: the entire development comprises 132 properties, all of which are individually owned by leaseholders.
