RESPONSE TO GOVERNMENT ANNOUNCEMENT OF A £200M FUND TO REPLACE UNSAFE GRENFELL TOWER-STYLE CLADDING ON PRIVATE HIGH-RISE RESIDENTIAL BUILDINGS

Lesley McLeod, CEO, The
Association for Project Safety

 “Safety needs to be
built in so, while the government’s commitment to additional funding to replace
high-rise cladding is welcome, it is better sense to tackle construction risks
at the outset. The Association for Project Safety (APS) believes it is vital
everyone who lives in a high-rise home can be confident they are safe so safety
must be the priority right from the planning stage.

“Safety is at the core
of good design and the APS remains committed to working with the government and
other professionals in the construction sector to promote and share good
practice, as well as making sure everyone can build the skills and knowledge,
they need to make Britain’s building better.

 “The APS welcomes the
use of public funds to make high rise buildings safer, but we are concerned the
timetable is very tight and that funds may prove insufficient – we believe it
is better to do things right than force a potentially unrealistic deadline and
budget on the project.”
