Block Management Overview

Management is about the minutia done well. It takes a team across a range of disciplines to deal with the multiple facets of block and estate management: politics, building pathology, finance, legal knowhow and of course customer service too.

At Ringley we believe in joined up thinking and commit to signpost Clients on all things property - even if outside our day-to-day management remit

Our true business is building relationships with our people. Our people really know that they can make a difference to our residents. We match our people to what each site needs to be achieved, with you in mind. We lead the market in transparency and focusing on risk, cash, repairs and place making, usually in that order.

We are not shy of hard work and believe our ability to get stuck in and find solutions that sets us apart. We are innovative to the core and committed to implementing good ideas in pursuit of 5* service.

Being who we are would be impossible without our passionately committed people, whose qualifications we sponsor and who we support professionally to be the best they can be, as achieving a national training award and our Silver IIP status confirms.

History of Archway

Archway is an inner-city district of the London Borough of Islington, in Greater London. It is located around 4 miles (6.4 km) north of Charing Cross on the edge of the city. The area takes its name from the Archway Bridge, which carries Hornsey Road over Highgate Hill.

The origins of the name Archway are uncertain. It may be named after the nearby Tyburn Brook, which ran underneath the archway bridge and through what is now Archway station. Another possibility is that it was named after a local landowner called John Bayley, who built a brick arched gateway leading to his house called Bayley’s Mount, which stood on the site of the present-day Archway tube station.

The Archway area has been inhabited since prehistoric times. In the Middle Ages, it was part of the manor of Highgate, which was owned by the Bishop of London. The area remained rural until the 19th century, when it was developed as part of the suburban growth of London.

The London Borough of Islington has seen a number of new developments in recent years, with Archway being one of the most up-and-coming areas. A number of new residential and commercial developments are planned or currently underway in the area, which is benefiting from significant investment.
