UKAA Webinar: The External Wall System (EWS1) Update Presented by Ringley

Tuesday 28th September 2021


Is your building safe?

Ringley trains government ministers on EWS1 and cladding and advises Government’s Housing and Communities £5 Billion fund. Following our updates earlier this year we invited you back for a webinar alongside Ringley and Tower Gate Insurance Brokers to re-visit and explain the the new EWS1 updates.

Three years on from the Grenfell tragedy, there are still 2,000 buildings covered with dangerous cladding materials according to the Housing, Communities and Local Government (HCLG) committee.

It is now impossible to get a mortgage on a building higher than 18 metres (around five to six floors) without an EWS1 form to certify that the cladding on residential blocks is safe.

The External Wall System (EWS) in many high rise blocks is often made up of the outside wall of a residential building, including cladding, insulation, fire break systems.
