Third of all buildings with Grenfell-style cladding yet to have it removed

Third of all buildings with Grenfell-style cladding yet to have it removed

After the 2017 Grenfell Tower fire, a nationwide review identified 458 buildings containing highly flammable aluminium composite material (ACM).To get more news about building cladding, you can visit boegger.net official website.

According to figures from the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG), unsafe cladding remains on 243 high-rise buildings in England, while remediation has not started at 135 of these as of July 31.

Of this figure, 90 sites have a plan to remove it while 39 are still ‘developing plans’ and six are classed as ‘unclear/awaiting advice’. The statistics show dangerous cladding has been removed at 215 buildings on the watch list.Most of the buildings to undergo work were private sector residential (102). Others included hotels (13), council housing (10), student accommodation (five) and other public buildings (five).

Labour previously said it was a ‘national disgrace’ thousands of people remain at risk while they live in buildings with unsafe cladding, and that the pandemic could not be used as an excuse not to remove it.

MHCLG said: ‘During Covid-19 restrictions, we know that 81 sites paused work on remediation and, as at July 31, 81% of those have resumed remediation works.’

On June 14, 2017 a blaze ripped through the 25-storey Grenfell Tower killing 72 people.

The fire began in a faulty fridge-freezer on the fourth floor but a public inquiry found it was ‘clear’ the building’s combustible exterior enabled the blaze to engulf the building so rapidly.
