Building and fire safety
Aluminium Composite Material (ACM) cladding, as used on Grenfell Tower, has been removed from our buildings and we are now in the process of inspecting other homes covered by the new building safety advice.
We are working with the fire authorities and local councils to make sure all fire safety requirements are met and kept up to date.
We would also like to reassure our residents that all of L&Q’s purpose-built apartment blocks:
- received Building Control sign-off at the time of build
- received approval from a licensed warranty provider after they were built
- have an up-to-date fire risk assessment – we review these each year for our high-rise blocks (18 metres or above) and any recommendations are dealt with immediately or put into a programme of work to be completed as soon as possible
However it is still very important that you know what to do in the event of a fire, and how to reduce the possibility of a fire in your home or building.
