Government’s Grenfell appeal

Sally Walmsley
Written by Sally Walmsley

The government is asking all private sector bodies for help in identifying all residential buildings over 18m (ACM clad or not) to help find those at risk from potentially dangerous cladding.

There is currently no central database that government can call on and so it is asking building owners and managers to submit a form, if they own/manage any residential buildings over 18m high, short or long stay, including hotels.

Even organisations that have already submitted cladding to the BRE for testing are being asked to complete the form in a letter from the DCLG before the end of this month.

The RLA has produced its own overview of fire safety in the PRS in the wake of the Grenfell Tower tragedy as well developing its own online and classroom fire safety courses.
