What is the
The EWS process and resulting form was introduced by the RICS to enable building owners to confirm that an external wall system on residential buildings has been assessed for combustibility and spread of flame by a suitable expert.
The process involves a “qualified professional” conducting a survey of the external wall system before signing a suitably completed EWS1 form which is then valid for the entire building for 5 years.
Bailey Partnership have been undertaking EWS1 Option A and B Cladding Surveys across the country since early 2020 ensuring accurate EWS1 forms accepted by finance providers and insurers are swiftly issued. Our multi-disciplinary team includes a dedicated team of Fire Engineers working on our EWS1 delivery programme which allows us to expedite the survey process and ensures a coordinated approach to fire engineering solutions.
Securing more than
£15M of funding
Our team have been working on Ministry of Housing Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) cladding remedial projects since the immediate aftermath of the Grenfell tragedy which includes the three iconic fifteen storey Mount Wise tower blocks in Plymouth. Working closely with Clients we have successfully secured over £15m of MHCLG funding on a number of projects which have been delivered or currently being delivered. We are working on funding applications for a further £12m of cladding remedial projects around the country which we expect to be funded through the original private sector Building Safety Fund launched in 2020.
