600 build­ings to be tested

Australasian Timber - - NEWS -

The Lon­don bor­ough of Cam­den has started re­mov­ing cladding from five tower blocks deemed to be un­safe ac­cord­ing to in­de­pen­dent test­ing by the Cam­den coun­cil. The cladding was found to pos­sess sim­i­lar­i­ties to the cladding used on Gren­fell Tower. As this cladding is re­moved, 24-hour safety war­dens are sta­tioned in each of the blocks. The Bri­tish Gov­ern­ment has or­dered cladding tests on 600 high-rise build­ings.
