Please see enclosed the confirmed expert findings, together with related ‘Form EWS1’ which records details of the assessment that has been carried out. The findings advise that the external wall insulation system will need to be removed and replaced, and recommend that an architect be commissioned to develop detailed remediation proposals.
In the meantime, we have put in place the following interim safety measures which we will continue to keep in place until the work is completed:
24 hour waking watch.
Updating the evacuation policy from “stay-put” to “simultaneously evacuate in the event of a fire”.
Working with the Fire Authority and the Local Authority, who are satisfied with the precautions we have put in place.
We appreciate your continued support and patience as we move forwards with the programme.
