Claremont Court, built in 2010 and home to 45 leaseholders, was previously a B2 building, meaning it required remedial works to improve the safety of the building.


The remediation project was one of the first in the country to use the new PAS9980 methodology. The PAS9980 standard was developed by the British Standards Institution (BSI) in January 2022, as a new code of practice for managing and reducing fire risk in high-rise residential buildings. The £3 million project was funded by Developers, Hill, to ensure costs were not at the expense of residents.


Keegans were appointed by Tower Hamlets Community Housing (THCH) to provide Clerk of Works and Contract Administrator services. Keegans also provided an EWS1 assessment on the completion of the project.


The fire remediation project of Claremont Court involved the remediation of a 7-storey residential building, 17.9m in height. The original Developer, Hill, were engaged to complete the remedial works under the Remedial Works Agreement.


Keegans Contract Administrators managed and oversaw the works to safeguard client interests by ensuring building compliance and quality assurance through independent quality checks during the entire construction phase.




The project involved removing combustible insulation and replacing defective fire barriers and timber cladding with safe materials. Other works included the removal of balcony cladding, balcony soffits, glazing to the top floor panels, and the balcony’s gulley and rainwater system.


This encompassed the replacement of the existing copper cladding system, renewing the insulation from combustible K15 to Rockwool Duo Slab, substituting WBP plywood with Class A1 rated sheathing board, replacing all RWGs, enclosing service penetrations with closed-state cavity barriers, and substituting combustible balcony substrates with A1 rated materials.


The completed project was handed over to the client on time and to budget in December 2023, ensuring the delivery of a high-quality, safe building for the residents.
