At the moment there are a number of major works projects underway, across the estate.

We hope to provide consistent communication, programming and delivery of these works in line with the original vision for the Barbican Estate and its listed requirements. Details of the current projects are listed below. 

Eton Environmental will be carrying out the annual inspection of the asbestos lining in locker cupboards and in communal areas across the Estate.

Residents will be informed of the locker cupboard inspections in advance, as the cupboards will need to be empty on the day of the survey on each floor.

The inspection will take no more than 10 minutes and will be carried out from outside of the property with no need to enter, at no time will the property be left unattended and the external door will be fully locked on completion.

Please note, procedures will be in place in line with COVID-19 legislation, surveyors will be wearing full protective equipment and maintain social distancing while the inspections are carried out.

If you have any queries or concerns whatsoever regarding the inspection, please do not hesitate to contact the project manager.
