This 15 storey building incorporated ACM and combustible foam insulation external cladding, similar to that involved in the Grenfell disaster.
Thomasons was appointed as lead consultant to investigate the nature and type of external wall cladding and design the replacement cladding system. Thomasons’ research established the original cladding supplier (the contractor had gone in to administration many years previously) that allowed the replacement non-combustible cladding to be fabricated based on original cladding sizes. This accelerated the cladding procurement and allowed works to start on site within two weeks of contractor appointment.
The total contract period was only 22 weeks and significantly shorter than originally anticipated.
