APM’s response to Grenfell report
The long-awaited public inquiry report into the Grenfell Tower fire tragedy on 14 June 2017 has been issued. The 1,000 page document follows the first phase of the inquiry, which looked at what happened on the night that 72 people died in the tower block fire. The report, amongst its findings, includes recommendations to the Prime Minister on building regulations and the stay-put policy.
Association for Project Management (APM) has responded to the publication of the Grenfell fire disaster report. Debbie Dore, chief executive of APM, said:
“This report is an important public document and we all need to ensure that the right lessons are learned. Our thoughts are with the families of the victims and the survivors on what will be a difficult day. Although this report focuses on the immediate event of the fire, much has been done by professional bodies to look at the wider issue of building safety and, crucially, the culture issues which underpin the building and renovation of high rise and similar buildings are addressed. The Hackitt report (Building a Safer Future) set out three themes central to addressing building safety concerns. The first two highlight the need for improving both culture and competence across all aspects of building and construction. The third theme binds these two themes together, namely the required leadership and co-operation across professions and sectors. We continue to work in cooperation with other professional bodies through the Construction Industry Council to achieve these changes.”
