Grenfell Tower Fire

15 Jun 2017

The Modern Masonry Alliance actively campaigns for safe and sustainable buildings and has previously expressed concerns to relevant stakeholders about the use of potentially combustible materials in our built environment.

At this time, the priority is caring for those directly affected by this tragic incident and the staff and members of the MMA send their condolences to residents, their families and gratitude to the emergency services.

The MMA welcomes the announcement of a public inquiry into this incident and will do all it can to support the aims of the inquiry. The MMA will also liaise with professional bodies and fire professionals in the submission of evidence and establishing how similar incidents can be prevented in future.

Our advice regarding fire design for designers and clients is that in order to fulfill CDM regulatory requirements, the best place to start is by choosing non-combustible materials.
