Construction Enquirer News Lawtech secures job to reclad two 14-storey blocks of flats
Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea has picked envelope specialist Lawtech to reclad two tower blocks in the West London Borough.
Rochester-based Lawtech has signed a pre-construction deal to design and reclad the 14-storey Adair and Hazelwood Towers, close to Grenfell.
The project is expected to be worth up to £7m and will involve the installation of a new external insulated render system.
Render and wall insulation was removed from the blocks in November 2018 after the expanded polystyrene system was deemed a fire risk by consultant Turner + Townsend following the Grenfell disaster.
The cladding on the blocks, which were built in 1958, was installed in 1992 and 1993.
