Because you house is worth caring about.

GlebeWebsiteA new residents association - the Glebe Estate in Chiswick, London - has joined the Chimni Residents's Association trial programme. Its new web site - - is the latest to use the Chimni Residents template that is one of the core distribution vehicles for the wider Chimni initiative.

Note On The Residents' Association Template Trial

The Chimni Residents' Associatoin Template is one of the key distribution mechanisms for Chimni Property accounts. Chimin are recruiting 10 REseidents Associations in West London to trial the template and its hyper-local publishing system. They will be reporting back on their use of the template in mid 2015.


B4H logoChimni has joined the Government's BIM4Housing Initiative intended to help the housebuilding industry in the UK adopt new Building Information Management techniques*.  BIM4Housing is a cross-industry group open to all organisations involved in the design, construction, management and delivery of housing, both private and affordable. Membership of BIM4Housing is reflective of the sector, involving clients, contractors, consultants, suppliers, subcontractors and other interested bodies. Chimni has taken on the challenge of representing the end user, the homeowner in deliberations with the industry.


*BIM Building Information Management is a new generation of Computer Aided Design (CAD) software that encourages architects to incorporate intelligent, 'Smart' data in construction models.  The Government believes that it will deliver significant efficiency gains to the housebuilding industry which can help them hit the goals for home creation in the coming years. For Chimni it could provide the raw data input to create Chimni logs for all new homes constructed.

BedfordParkSiteBedford Park was the first 'garden suburb' and it is impossible to follow any history of British house building or UK architecture in general without stumbling across references to it.  Sir John Betjeman, who founded the Victorian Society, called Bedford Park “the most significant suburb built in the last century.”  Having redefined how we were to live in suburbs in the 19th and 20th century, Bedford Park is now joining an initiative to redefine how we manage our homes in the 21C.

As the next Residents' Association to join the Chimni Residents Trial they join Stamford Brook in the experiment to define how communities will manage themselves in the connected 'Smart' age.  For more information contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
