Project Details

Axis was commissioned to conduct a cyclical maintenance programme across both blocks for our client, managing agents Mainstay. Located on Clapham Common Southside, the Latitude and Maud Chadburn Place are landmark buildings in south London.

Latitude (from 1916 to 1984) was originally The South London Hospital for Women and Children, founded by two surgeons, Eleanor Davies-Colley and Maud Chadburn. The property became a residential block in the 1980s. Costa Coffee (under Maud Chadburn) and Tesco plus car park (behind Latitude) are located below the apartments.

Our external works began with cleaning, repairing, and painting the brickwork and masonry. This was applied to all elevations, the parapet coping, the concrete walkway canopy, the chimneys, the stonework entrance steps and the ornamental vases. We also painted downpipes, soffits and fascias.

Our team repaired and painted the timber including doors, shutters and window frames. We replaced old worn shutters and repaired any metalwork, such as the railings, entrance gates, plant room doors, bollards and fire escapes. The team cleaned and repainted aluminium window frames, applied pigeon spikes and removed, eased, oiled, adjusted and rehung the main communal and service entrance doors.

We then completed internal works as part of the cyclical maintenance programme. The team painted walls, stairwell surfaces, corridors, staircases, door frames and skirtings and metal balustrades. We also made minor repairs to water damaged areas and cracks.

Our award-winning team of experts used only non-abrasive cleaning products (we choose the Doff method of cleaning for all stonework and concrete) and takes great care to match the paint finishes and mortar for an appropriate finish.

In the car park, we painted the walls and ceiling and refreshed the markings on the tarmac. Throughout the works, Axis liaised with Tesco and we were careful not to obstruct shoppers or the car park entrance. We kept residents regularly informed and updated about the progress of the project. We undertook abseiling during the works as well as using scaffolding and cherry pickers.
