Grenfell: Council building control inspector says Kingspan ‘misled’ him
A former Herefordshire Council building control survey claims he was “misled” by Kingspan and BBA documents when he issued an approval certificate for Kingspan K15.
A BRE director does not recall the organisation following up on a “wholly inaccurate” certificate issued by Herefordshire LABC that gave automatic acceptance for cladding systems employing Kingspan’s combustible K15 insulation on buildings over 18m in height.
The UK sales manager for Arconic, the firm that supplied the Reynobond ACM 55 PE cladding used on Grenfell Tower, did not discuss the combustibility of the products she was marketing with clients, the Grenfell Tower Inquiry has heard.
