When the testing was first announced by the MHCLG, our existing clients selected Martin Arnold and we were instructed to visit and organise testing of around 100 blocks within London and the South East.

This commission involved attending the sites and identifying potential ACM materials that would require testing. We coordinated the removal of the samples and managed the sample issue to the BRE. Following this we were instructed to design and manage the replacement of the defective ACM cladding along with some further issues found internally with the fire stopping as highlighted by the Type 4 FRA.

As part of this commission, we provided the scheme with an enhanced Quality Control (Clerk of Works) resource on site every day to record, advise and manage the removal and replacement process. We also assisted the client in obtaining a successful BSF bid allocation of funds and claim against the original developer.

Added Value

The project was unique as it was one of the first to have completed following the advice given by the MHCLG to remove ACM type cladding from Buildings over 18m. This was the project where we developed the Gridline System for accurate recording and provided the Golden Thread of information to our client at handover. We were also one of the first to receive full BSF funding for the works.
