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 Oval

Oval is situated inner south of London, in the borough of Lambeth. It is 2.3 miles from the centre of London. In c. 1790, during the reign of George III, (r. 1760-1820), an oval road was laid around what was originally a cabbage garden, and then a market market. It became known as "The Oval" by 1830. 
In 1845, during the reign of Queen Victoria, (r. 1837-1901), the Oval was opened as a cricket ground, and the grounds were owned by the the Duchy of Cornwall. A number of proposed building projects had failed, prior to this new development. 
Interestingly, in the Victorian era, the Oval ground hosted sports unrelated to cricket. For example, in 1851, an endurance walking took place: Richard Manks covered 1,000 miles in 500 hours, walking around the Oval's outfield. To help Manks at night, lamps were hung around the ground. This was the world's first floodlit sporting event. 
On 16th March 1872, at the Oval, the first FA Cup Final was played, in front of a crowd of 2,000 people. Leytonstone Wanderers Football Club beat the Royal Engineers 1-0. 
On 5th February 1872, at the Oval, the first rugby union match took place, with England beating Scotland 2-0. On 18th January 1879, at the Oval in snowy conditions, the very first rugby match took place between the tow home nation teams: England beat Wales 2-1. 
From 6th to 8th September 1880, the Oval hosted the first "Test Match" to be held in England, since the series began in 1877, in Melbourne. WG Grace, scored the first ever century for England, and defeated Australia. Further, his brothers E.M. Grace and Fred Grace, played the same Test. 
In 2007, redevelopment of the Pavilion End increased the ground's capacity, with a further 2,000 seats. More developments followed: in 2009, four masts of semi-permanent telescopic floodlights, costing £3.7m were installed, use in late-day through evening matches. In 2013, new "wings" were added either side of the OCS Stand at the Vauxhall end of the ground. Each "wing" added 500 seats. So, the capacity was increased, from 23,500 to 24,500. In 2016, a new stand was completed, at a cost of around £10m. This increased the capacity of the ground by 1,300 seats, to 25,300. There is a long-term redevelopment of the ground by Surrey County Cricket Club, to make the Oval transformed into the largest cricket stadium in the western hemisphere, with a capacity of 40,000. Today, the Oval ground is owned by King Charles III, the Duchy of Cornwall.  
In 1890, the Oval station opened as Kennington Oval, on the City and South London Railway. It was named after the local cricket ground. In the early 1920s, the station was rebuilt. The Oval Underground station we know today, is on the Northern Line.
