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 Stratford

Stratford is situated in the borough of Newham, and is 6.5 miles east of the centre of London. In 1087, during the reign of King William I, "The Conqueror", (1066-1087), first evidence of the name Straetforda was recorded. This means "ford on a Roman road". It originates from Old English "straet" (in modern English "street"), and "ford". The original river crossing was located north of Stratford High Street. 
In the 1130s, Stratford Langthorne Abbey was built; and this was to become one of the largest monasteries in the country. However, it was closed down, when Henry VIII, (r. 1509-1547), enforced the dissolution of monasteries. This was because he had cut himself off from the Catholic Church in Rome, and declared himself head of the Church of England, to suppress political opposition.
For a long time, Stratford was mainly rural and agricultural: its proximity to London gave it a ready market for its produce. By the mid 18th century, the area flourished with potato growing, and this continued into the mid 19th century. By the 19th century, Stratford was becoming more industrialised. For example, the Bow porcelain factory was one of the first factories in Britain to produce porcelain from a soft-paste. By the 1820s, Stratford had its own dock and wharves, along the River Thames. Due to its position between London and the east of the country, Stratford gained as a transport centre. 
In 1839, Stratford was granted its own railway station, and with the emergence of the railway, there was a need for more housing: a new town was built to accommodate railway workers. This was originally called Hudson Town, and later renamed Stratford New Town. By the 1860s, over 20,000 people lived and worked in the area.
Despite these improvements, Stratford was an impoverished and deprived area during the 19th century. In the 1960s, there was a building programme for new homes. In 1974, the Stratford Shopping Centre was opened. In 2011, Westfield Stratford City, a major shopping centre, was opened. This was a significant development, as it transformed the area. In 2012, another major landmark was opened: the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, purpose-built for the 2012 Summer Olympics and Paralympics. The stadium is adjacent to the Stratford City development. In 2019, Stratford's population was estimated as 36,666.
