Aftermath 2012 - LLDC Cladding Safety Report June 2017 'No inadequacies have been identified'

Following the recent article in Inside Housing which reported

Aluminium composite material (ACM) cladding, which was judged to be a major contributor to the spread of fire at Grenfell Tower in 2017, has still not been removed from 11 of the residential blocks in the East Village of Olympic Park in Stratford, east London.

ACM was discovered only this summer on two of the blocks. Landlord Triathlon Homes said this had been found in “limited places” and was “no immediate safety concern to residents”.

The East Village, which housed 17,000 athletes, was converted into 2,800 homes across 65 blocks after the games and was seen as a key part of the ‘London 2012 Olympic Legacy’ and regeneration of Stratford.
