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 Baker Street

Baker Street is situated in the Marylebone district, of the City of Westminster. It is 2.7 miles from the centre of London. The origins of the name refers to William Baker, an entrepreneurial builder. In 1755, he began laying out the street.
From 1835, the sculptor James Fillan lived and worked from 82 Baker Street. Also in 1835, Marie Tussauds a French wax sculptor, founded the wax museum at Baker Street. In 1884, Tussaud's grandsons relocated the museum to its current site, at Marylebone Road. The museum today is known as Madame Tussauds. 
One major turning point in the history of Baker Street in the Victorian era, was the opening of the station in 1863. This was the world's first underground network, with the earliest steam-driven trains; and it was served by the Metropolitan Line. Unfortunately, this pioneering route disrupted slum dwellings, leaving around 12,000 poorer Londoners without homes; and they were not offered compensation for their losses.
The Baker Street Underground station we know today, is on the Metropolitan, Circle, Hammersmith & City, Bakerloo and Jubilee Lines. To celebrate the station's 120th anniversary in 1983, its oldest platforms were restored to make them look as close as possible to their original 1863 design. 
The street is most famous for its association with the fictional detective, Shirlock Holmes, who lived at 221B Baker Street; and now, there is a popular museum at this address. So, the author Sir Conan Doyle, (1859-1930), has a legacy to be proud of. The novelists Arnold Bennett, (1867-1931), and H. G. Wells, (1866-1946), lived at Chiltern Court on the Regent's Park end of Baker Street. 
Prime Minister William Pitt the Younger, (1759-1806) lived at 120 Baker Street, from 1803 to 1804. He is often referred to as "new Tory". However, he called himself an "independent Whig", and was generally opposed to the development of a strict partisan political system.   
The singer Dusty Springfield, (1939-1999), lived at Baker Street in the 1960s; and the Beatles' Apple Boutique was based at 94 Baker Street, from 1967 to 1968.

What our CEO, Mary Anne Bowring, likes about Baker Street

With my friend, I visited Madame Tussauds. Even though we arrived very early, there was still a very long queue. Anyway, it was worth the wait, as we enjoyed a great range of waxwork models. Some of them looked very realistic!
