105 English buildings have now had dangerous cladding removed, latest figures

I’ve got our rudderless (unless you count Amber) government’s latest monthly Building Safety programme data release – and I’m going to share its contents with you.

According to the update, 105 high-rise residential and publicly owned buildings in England have had aluminium composite material (ACM) cladding systems removed – an increase of 10 since the end of April 2019.

The 105 buildings break down as follows:

• 56 managed by local authorities or housing associations

• 13 private sector residential

• 32 student accommodation

• 2 hotels

• 2 publicly owned (an education building and a health building)

So, this leaves ‘328 high-rise residential and publicly owned buildings with ACM cladding systems unlikely to meet Building Regulations yet to be remediated in England, as at 31 May 2019'.

And those buildings break down as:

• 102 social sector residential

• 163 private sector residential

• 27 student accommodation

• 29 hotels

• 7 publicly owned (all health buildings)

As for the 102 social sector residential buildings, 81 have started remediation; 20 have a remediation plan in place but works have not started; and one has reported an intent to remediate and is developing plans.

Meanwhile, of the 163 private sector residential buildings, 17 have started remediation; 74 have a remediation plan in place but works have not started; 35 have responded with an intent to remediate and are developing plans; and 37 remain with unclear remediation plans.

So, still lots and lots to be sorted, then.

Here’s the whole update.
