Morrison Court, Westminster

Morrison Court is a six storey block of 24 flats in the City of Westminster.

We were employed to assist with the removal and replacement of the existing EWI render systems with a new fully A1 rated non-combustible EWI render system. The project also involved the replacement of spandrel panels and internal fire doors.

The client’s fire engineer had identified that the existing external wall system was not fit for purpose and required removal. In the interim a waking watch was implemented on site to allow residents to remain in-situ.

By facilitating the procurement and tender process in a timely manner we enabled the contractor to start on site and remove the existing external wall systems. This in turn removed the risk from the building and allowed the client to release the existing waking watch, saving them a considerable sum on a weekly basis.

This was the first installation of the Wetherby Building Systems Ltd A1 rated EWI system in the UK. The system and all of its component parts were fully tested and achieved the highest possible fire classification.
