A spokesperson for East End Homes and Tower Hamlets Council said:
Ongoing tests on residential buildings clad with ACM (Aluminium Composite Material) panels in Tower Hamlets has identified that Denning Point, owned by Eastend Homes, does not fully comply with the requirements of the testing regime.
The panel is a fire retardant (FR) version of the cladding panel and EastendHomes will be seeking further information on the results of sample of the panel supplied for testing.
The Fire Risk Assessment (FRA) for the block was undertaken very recently in March 2017 and a further comprehensive joint inspection with the Fire Brigade took place this morning.
All measures recommended by the Fire Brigade are in place and in addition Eastend Homes has immediately introduced further measures to meet DCLG recommendations and ensure the continued safety of residents: These include a 24/7 fire patrol service stationed at Denning Point to inspect communal areas throughout the night .
Eastend Homes are ensuring all residents are kept fully informed of these measures and further regular updates will be provided as further information becomes available.
The council’s enforcement officers (THEOs) are providing support and will be available if needed.
The local MP and ward councillors have been informed of the current and will also be kept updated.
