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 results 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 works would be carried out in three phases:

Phase 1 – Emergency works to strip existing cladding

Phase 2 – Remedial works following stripping and enabling works for reinstatement

Phase 3 – General improvement works to the blocks

Michael Dyson Associates Ltd had an existing relationship with Lewisham Homes following an earlier programme of surveys and was appointed initially to carry out structural assessments and project manage the stripping/remedial works phases; we were subsequently further appointed to provide contract administration services for the improvement works with our design team separately appointed to submit a planning application and provide design services for the recladding works direct to United Living, the main contractor for the works.
