Meet the ManagersMon 30 Oct 2017
We grabbed a coffee with RMG's James Sturgeon, to discuss the group's newly appointed role as The Boiler House's building managers.
Hi, and you are?
Hello! James Sturgeon, I am an Associate Director from RMG London, responsible for new business developments into our London portfolio.
How are you going to be involved at The Boiler House?
RMG will be responsible for setting the annual service charge budget and placing contracts for the building, so this includes all sorts of important jobs such as cleaning, fire defences, lifts and pumps.
And what does this mean exactly?
It means that RMG will be responsible for all communal areas of The Boiler House. We will attend site on a regular basis to ensure the maintenance of the building is being carried out to a high standard, and it will be us who arrange any repairs where necessary.
So you will be the first point of call for The Boiler House residents?
Yes absolutely, any service charge queries or reporting faults in the communal areas should be reported to RMG. Residents can also seek help from The Boiler House's designated Property Manager, Damon Ryall.
What are you most looking forward to about the finished building?
We are excited to be a part of this regeneration project, and to see the local community thrive with the new and exciting commercial and communal spaces available.
You’re going to be spending quite a lot of time in Hayes, what’s your favourite thing to do there?
The Beck Theatre puts on some great shows throughout the year, and it's really close to The Boiler House!
Tell us something that people may not know about The Old Vinyl Factory.
The Old Vinyl Factory was once the only major vinyl pressing plant in the UK, so it really was the manufacturing hub at the heart of the UK music industry. Some of the UK’s greatest bands and musicians had their music printed there!
