Work to remove and replace cladding at AddlestoneOne has been completed under budget and ahead of schedule, bringing peace of mind for residents.
The earlier than expected completion (by two months) is good news for residents and means owners who want to sell their apartments to move house can do so sooner than planned. No individual apartment owners have been charged for the panels on their homes to be removed and replaced or any other related work.
Cllr Tom Gracey, who leads the Conservative Administration at Runnymede Borough Council, said: "I would like to thank everyone who lives at Addlestone One or Middlesex Court behind it for their patience during these important works. It is gratifying that the job has been completed quicker than expected and that the buildings all now meet the latest safety standards. The cladding issues identified at Addlestone One were not unique to this development. It is a national problem which we and many other building owners and their tenants have faced, but we have acted promptly and decisively to get the job done, protecting local people."
There is more good news for Addlestone town centre after the the world’s first hybrid football arena, KickX, located to AddlestoneOne. The launch event saw visitors watch brand new sports such as panna, teqball and padbol showcased by some of the best players in the UK.
Cllr Myles Willingale, Deputy Council Leader, added: "The dynamic blend of homes, businesses, and leisure offerings at AddlestoneOne has created a vibrant atmosphere that is attracting both residents and visitors to our town."
