Keegans were appointed Principal Designer alongside our sister company ECD Architects on the recladding of this 23-storey residential building in Aldgate, Central London.

Originally built in the late 1960s, Denning Point was re-clad with combustible ACM in 2014. Following the Grenfell tragedy, EastEnd Homes undertook a risk assessment and subsequently placed a waking watch in the building until the cladding could be removed and replaced. We were appointed to help EastEnd Homes achieve the safe removal and design a safe alternative which complied with updated Building Regulations.

A safe alternative cladding product to meet A1 Fire classification was designed by our Architects, ECD also ensuring the replacement cladding resembled the previous appearance. This new cladding system consisted of solid aluminium cladding panels, a mineral wool insulation, full fill cavity barriers in horizontal positions and intumescent cavity barriers in vertical positions.

Keegans Principal Designer worked with our designers, Fire Engineers and FRS to ensure a safe method of working could be deployed whilst the cladding removed. We also worked collaboratively to ensure the challenging work of removing the combustible material from the private areas was done carefully and safely, whilst maintaining the safety of residents at all times, reducing the impact of temporary works.
