UKAA Roundtable: Uncladding the Hackitt Review presented by Ringley

Thursday 23rd January 2020

Impacts and issues for Build To Rent and block managers of high-risk (10+ storeys) residential buildings (HRRBs) arising from Dame Judith Hackitt’s building safety review.

One big idea is the proposal to create a golden thread of key information about every new HRRB in the country. This data is to be digitally recorded, maintained and made readily available to all stakeholders, including residents.

The kind of information that will be recorded is

  • Size and height of the building
  • Structure
  • Building fabric
  • Escape and fire compartmentation information
  • Systems in operation
  • Permanent fixtures and fittings

This will apply to both new buildings and existing stock – estimated to be between 2,000 and 3,000 buildings in the UK.

Mary Anne Bowring, CEO at Ringley Group will consider the issues and difficulties involved in this idea together with the opportunities and potential solutions available.
