Enhanced fire safety checks

As part of our ongoing work to deliver the highest safety standards throughout the Chalcots Estate, further fire safety assessments have been undertaken. 

Using the standards advised by the London Fire Brigade for fire risk assessment, we appointed a private company, called Frankham Risk Management Services, to carry out these enhanced fire risk assessments.

They are a private company accredited by the BAFE (British Approvals for Fire Equipment) which independently acknowledges their fire protection experience.  Frankham have been on site inspecting the communal areas and reviewing a number of residents’ flats, including assessing the window frames, the fitting of new flat entrance doors and the removal of existing cladding.

Residents are reminded that the council carried out the works that the London Fire Brigade said needed to be done in communal areas in order to ensure they could return to their homes, but that there is an ongoing programme of improvements works to deliver even higher standards within the building, including their flats.
