One fully clad high-rise accommodation block, Vanguard Building at HMS Nelson, Portsmouth, has been fully remediated this year.

The remaining 25 high-rise buildings which are partially clad have been surveyed. The results are being used to determine required remedial work, after which, completion dates will be set.

A similar programme to assess low-rise accommodation buildings for external wall systems containing combustible components is underway.

All buildings have a current Fire Risk Assessment in place and remain legally complaint for continued occupation.
