Statement from CEP Architectural Facades regarding comments by the Chancellor

Responding to comments made by the Chancellor this morning regarding the cladding material used on Grenfell Tower, John Cowley, managing director of CEP Architectural Facades, said: “Reynobond PE is not banned in the U.K. Current building regulations allow its use in both low rise and high rise structures.

“The key question now is whether the overall design of the building’s complete exterior was properly tested and subsequently signed off by the relevant authorities including the Fire Officer, Building Compliance Officer and architect before commencement of the project?
