Yesterday, 18 March, London Fire Brigade trainee fire safety inspecting officers visited Hatfield Close in New Cross to view the new cladding system being installed.
Lewisham Homes’ fire risk manager Charles Brown hosted the visit, alongside principal contractor United Living’s site manager Tom Weal.
This is part of the on-going partnership working between Lewisham Homes and the London Fire Brigade.
The visit was to give a CPD input on the practical installation of an exemplar cladding system, to explain how the system is installed and how it is designed to prevent fire spread over the façade of the building. The trainees also inspected fire safety improvements installed internally within the block, such as automatic opening smoke ventilation and the new sprinkler system.
