Saha Statement following Grenfell Tower Fire

Saha and Chapter 1 would like to express that our thoughts and prayers go out to anyone who has been affected by the tragic events at Grenfell Tower.

We would like to reassure all our residents and partners that we have a robust and comprehensive Fire Safety and Health & Safety Compliance management regime in place. All staff work closely with our contractors, consultants and agencies to ensure that these systems are appropriately and effectively managed.

We have reviewed the buildings in our portfolio, including those operated by Chapter 1,and can confirm that we do not own or manage any buildings that have been clad with Aluminium Composite Materials (ACMs), as were found to have been used at Grenfell Tower.

The majority of our properties are considered low or medium-rise, however we have supplied relevant building assessment information to the Department of Communities and Local Government (DCLG) for all of our buildings that are six storeys and above as we continue to review any possible risks at all our properties. Given the grave nature of recent events we have also instructed specialist independent engineers to undertake additional technical checks of the structure of a number of our medium and high rise buildings as a precautionary measure.

 

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Saha’s customer services team on 0800 970 6363 or email info@saha.org.uk.
