The T&T Facades cladding remediation team is pleased to announce its latest project.

Working with Berkeley Maintenance Services, the Aqua building in Lifeboat Quay, Poole, has been identified as one of the 22 residential blocks above 18-meters in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole to have non-compliant cladding which is in breach of current regulations.

T&T’s scope of works includes the removal of the unsafe terracotta system and the combustible materials behind it. Once removed, the team will be installing a new non-combustible substructure and Cedral Click weather boarding, similar to the original terracotta colours.

The stainless steel backing structure will provide longevity for the systems lifespan, given its close proximity to the harbour.

Commenting, T&T Facades’ MD, Tom Rutter said “It has understandably been a very worrying and unsettling time for residents living for some time in a building deemed unsafe. We are therefore very pleased to be getting the remediation works underway for them and our client. T&T has considerable experience with this type of project so we expect to expedite the works as swiftly as possible and with the least amount of disruption for residents”.

Work has just begun on site and is expected to complete at the end of 2024.
