Grenfell – Refurbishment faults ‘fuelled fire’

The deaths of 71 people in the Grenfell Tower disaster would have been avoided had the building not been refurbished, according to a fire report.

A BRE Global report, leaked to the Evening Standard, concluded that the fire would have had “little opportunity” to spread from the flat it started in, had it not been for the recladding and other works carried out between 2014 and 2016. More details are provided in the attached NCE article.
