UK orders housebuilders to come up with $5 bln plan to remove cladding

Mon, 10th Jan 2022 07:21

LONDON, Jan 10 (Reuters) - Britain has given housebuilders
around two months to come up with a fully-funded plan to remove
dangerous cladding from residential housing, a project that
could cost at least 4 billion pounds $5.4 billion).

A deadly 2017 blaze at Grenfell Tower in London, that killed
more than 70 people, revealed the widespread use of flammable
cladding on apartment blocks across the country, requiring
expensive removal or round-the-clock fire watches.

Minister Michael Gove said in a statement on Monday that the
industry had until early March to agree a plan to deal with
cladding on buildings that are between 11 and 18 metres high.
