Southere Tower

The four towers on Southmere Lake are amongst the most iconic buildings in Thamesmead.

But they are also people’s homes, and we’ll be making sure that our repairs make life better for the people living there.

As well as the refurbishment of the Oakenholt House, Osney House, Penton House and Trewsbury House tower blocks, we’ll also be making lots of improvements to communal areas and entrances to make them better for everyone.

We’re also investing in the streets, courtyards and green spaces around Southmere. This will enhance the quality and appearance of these spaces so more people can enjoy them.

We are replacing the windows with new double-glazed windows. This will improve the energy efficiency of the buildings, make it cheaper to heat homes, and help to reduce damp and condensation. 

We have also instructed a contractor, Martek, to carry out concrete condition surveys. Martek will be using abseiling equipment to inspect the outside of the towers so they can determine what concrete repairs are required

The windows in the Southmere towers will also start later this year. A contractor is to be appointed shortly.

For Parkview and Lenses towers we have created a 'pilot flat' at Maplin House to help assess the designs for the windows, balcony screens and improvements to the ventilation systems.

We have also instructed a contractor, Martek, to carry out concrete condition surveys. Martek will be using abseiling equipment to inspect the outside of the towers so they can determine what concrete repairs are required
