The government has begun naming building owners and managers without a plan to remediate unsafe cladding on at least one of their buildings, as part of its post-Grenfell screening programme.
The five companies have at least one building with unsafe aluminium composite material (ACM) cladding, the same type of cladding used on Grenfell Tower (pictured), and are understood to be responsible for the remediation of the buildings in question.
The list would have been longer, but the government excluded companies whose names would lead to the identification of a specific building with unsafe cladding, it said. It also excluded companies that were awaiting further advice from public authorities about making their buildings safe, or companies that are in administration.
The list, which will be updated “periodically”, is:
- · Adriatic Land 3 Limited
- · Chaplair Limited
- · Grangewalk Developments Limited
- · RMB 102 Limited
- · STG Management (London) Limited
To be counted as having a plan in place, companies must have started tendering for remediation works.
The government continues to screen buildings owned by both the public and private sector, working with industry bodies such as the Home Builders Federation, Association of Residential Letting Agents, and the British Property Federation.
Last year, ministers pledged to fully fund the removal and replacement of unsafe ACM cladding on private sector residential buildings standing 18 metres or taller, at an estimated cost of £200m.
