Project: Four Squares Estate, Bermondsey, London

Client: Keepmoat

The Four Squares Estate (New Place Estate) consists of 691 homes within four near identical blocks, built between 1971- 1975. The estate is located between Southwark Park Road and Drummond Road, Bermondsey.

Barwin were appointed by the London Borough of Southwark to work closely with Keepmoat and council tenants to deliver planned maintenance services across the estate. This is a very complex project and arguably one of the largest concrete repair projects in the UK.

The scope of works involved concrete testing, repairs, cleaning and application of anti-carbonation coatings to approximately 100000 sq. m of concrete (including car parks), which act as a barrier to further carbonation to enhance the durability of the concrete allowing a maintenance regime to be scheduled every ten years. Additionally, the coating provides an aesthetic exterior that improves the general appearance of the previously uncoated surfaces on the Four Squares Estate. Barwin are working to strict method statements to ensure that works are carried out in a safe manner and cause minimal disruption to the tenants.
