Martin Arnold were instructed to design and manage the replacement of the cladding systems to ensure compliance with current regulations.

Eyot House is a 9-storey residential building which had both rainscreen cladding and external wall insulation render systems that did not meet Building Regulations.

This posed a potential fire safety risk to its occupants following advice from the MHCLG and the Grenfell Tower fire. Martin Arnold provided solutions that met the emerging requirements, which led to the confidence of both client and residents.

Critical Challenge

The critical challenge on this project was trying to predict the changes to Building Regulations and other government advice (such as Advice Note 14). We had to ensure we stayed on top of emerging recommendations and were in a position to advise our client accordingly. The Client’s objective was to ensure the highest standards of quality was achieved whilst delivering the project as efficiently as possible.

A key objective of Martin Arnold’s was to minimise the disruption to the residents whilst ensuring their safety at all times during the construction phase. We used our developed Gridline system to monitor and record the progress and quality from the removal to replacement, during a 5-day period (Monday- Friday). This minimised disruption and reduced the risk of large areas being exposed to the elements for long periods of time.
