All-clear for Scots Grenfell scare homes
SCOTTISH homes feared to have Grenfell-style cladding have been given the all-clear following an investigation by surveyors.
Newton Property are the factors representing the owners of the three residential blocks at Castlebank Place, Glasgow Harbour Terraces and Meadowside Quay Walk.
Joint managing director Derek MacDonald said: “During the initial investigation conducted by Glasgow City Council, paperwork dating back to 2005 suggested that aluminium composit material cladding may be present.
“Newton immediately instructed a surveyor to carry out a physical investigation into the cladding material present on the buildings. The report came back showing no signs of ACM cladding used in the identified areas of each block.
“We have now written to all the owners of the properties within each block to alleviate any previous concerns and hope that the report reassures them that the cladding in place is not ACM and does not pose any increased level of fire risk.”
A Glasgow City Council spokesman said: “Council officers have seen the surveyor’s report and we are satisfied that the areas previously identified do not therefore pose any increased fire risk.”
There are other residential blocks in the development not managed by Newton Property.
