Cladding case goes ahead after time-limitation argument rejected | Construction News

A judge has paved the way for a £4m cladding remediation claim to go to trial, with the building’s former owner allegedly concealing that refurbishment work had not been signed off by Building Control.

The case has been brought by Regis Group subsidiary RG Securities, which is seeking £3.6m to fix a building it acquired from a subsidiary of developer R Maskell Ltd in April 2015. RG Securities alleges that the cladding on the 16-storey residential block in Ipswich is more dangerous than the type installed on the Grenfell Tower. It also claims that other fire prevention work was not carried out on the building.
