Barbican Estate

​Barbican Estate

To improve performance for the benefit of residents, the Barbican Estate Office has established clear timescales and targets to promote accountability with service providers.

Barbican Cold Water Storage Tanks Project

The City of London Corporation will be carrying out works to the cold-water storage tanks across the Barbican Estate. The works are to replace or repair existing water storage and ancillary equipment associated with the supply of hot and cold-water services. Not all residents will be affected by the works. A letter will go out to only those residents affected, outlining exact details of isolation times / cut off periods.

Download the schedule of works (123KB) for the whole estate. This programme is subject to change due to external forces.
