We are finalising the surveys and reports for all our buildings in this category. We are carrying out this work as part of our building safety programme and EWS1 forms have been completed for each of the buildings where this is appropriate.
Across the country there are thousands of buildings that need these forms, and a limited number of qualified people who can do the work so it will take some time before our programme is complete.
Due to the Covid 19 outbreak this work was paused but has started again in the summer of 2020. Please note that some services are affected by the pandemic response and the need to work in a Covid-safe way. More information on our response to the pandemic is here.
What is an EWS1 form?
This form was developed by experts to help building owners record what assessment of the external wall construction of buildings over 18 metres tall has been carried out and the outcomes. Getting the information required to complete this form can often require significant intrusive testing of the fabric of the building. This is because, to comply with current government safety guidelines, building owners cannot rely on the fact a building received Building Control sign off at the time it was built.
I live in a building over 18m and I need a copy of the EWS1 form.
We are happy to provide a copy of the EWS1 form for our buildings over 18m. Please email Sales Services.
