Three 24 storey 1960's tower blocks on the Edward Woods Estate in west London, owned by the Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham, have undergone a comprehensive £12m refurbishment that will extend their life by 40 years. High winds caused part of the external brick panel to become detached and fall due to failed wall ties. As a result, the outer leaf brickwork had to be securely fixed to the inner leaf blocks and concrete frame.
