Replacement Cladding – Hatfield Close & Gerrard House

Lewisham Homes & United Living

Nature of Work Undertaken

Following the Grenfell tower disaster in June 2017, Lewisham Homes proceeded to test cladding on various high-rise blocks within their stock. The test results from the BRE showed the cladding system at Hatfield Close (two blocks) and Gerrard House had ‘failed’ in terms of combustibility. Lewisham Homes took the immediate decision to strip the existing cladding as emergency works. Project partners were appointed under an accelerated process.

The scope of works included:

Phase 1 – Emergency works to strip existing cladding materials from each block.

Phase 2 – Remedial works following stripping of cladding system and enabling works for reinstatement works.

Phase 3 – General improvement works to blocks (external cladding, kitchen, bathroom & boiler replacements, sprinkler installation, flat roof coverings) and refreshed landscaping.

Our design team was separately appointed to submit a planning application and provide design services on behalf of United Living for the recladding works.

Resident consultation was carried out during the design and throughout the delivery stages with MDA working in partnership with Lewisham Homes and United Living to ensure robust communication processes and a commitment to social value.

The project was a winner in the Inside Housing 2020 Resident Safety Campaign Awards, shortlisted for ‘Best Community Engagement’ and Won ‘Project of the Year £10 million to £25 million’ awards at the 2021 National Building & Construction Awards.
