A “one stop” expert service on cladding
13th March 2020
K2 has joined forces with award-winning executive architecture practice Design Delivery Unit to offer a “one stop” expert service to owners, occupiers, developers and investors who may be concerned if their building meets the new regulations relating to the use of ACM panels. Our purpose is to investigate and resolve the risk of fire spread inherent in some building cladding systems whilst containing cost for building owners by exploring avenues of recourse that may offset your liability.
Few in the property industry could fail to have been affected by what unfolded on 14 June 2017 at Grenfell Tower. A ferocious fire, that started on the 4th floor, rapidly spread up the exterior of the building claiming 72 lives. On 21 December 2018 the government’s promised ban on the use of aluminium composite (ACM) cladding on residential buildings came into force. K2 and Design Delivery Unit’s report answers some common questions.
