The dreadful events at Grenfell Tower on the 14th June remind us all how critically important it is that we as property managers fulfil our duties in advising our clients on the fire risks inherent in blocks of flats.
As the circumstances that gave rise to this tragic event are revealed in the coming weeks and months, we anticipate they will reflect mostly on the safety design and fabric of the building. There is however so much that can be done procedurally and organisationally to reduce fire risks. HML as professional managing agents will re-double our efforts to ensure that fire risk is professionally assessed and mitigated wherever possible.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their friends and families who have so unfairly been affected by this tragedy.
