Publication date:

Could you please provide details of all buildings in your borough that have failed EWS1 compliance, ie. External Wall System Fire Review certificate / cladding


We can confirm where EWS1 assessments have been conducted no building have “failed”.

The response is based on the terminology of the question in regards to failure, EWS1 inspections are not a specific legal requirement in regards to building management because these were developed for the financial sector regarding mortgages. We have undertaken EWS1 surveys for 6 blocks, therefore, the above statement is true.
