BSRIA supports creation of Industry Response Group

The Building Services Research and Information Association (BSRIA) supports the forming of the Industry Response Group (IRG) in the wake of Grenfell Tower disaster.

The IRG will be made up of both government and the construction industry, with the intent of ensuring that the sector can meet the challenges emergent following the tragic event at Grenfell Tower.

In addition to government membership, the IRG also consists of the Construction Industry Council (CIC), Build UK and Construction Products Association (CPA). Working with industry stakeholders, the Group will lead the industry response on the event and work with the Independent Expert Advisory Panel (IEAP). It will ensure that the industry can deal with the challenges of implementing the recommendations of the IEAP, enabling both public and private sector to deliver safer buildings.

Julia Evans, chief executive at BSRIA, said: “BSRIA thinks this is a very positive step and is supportive of the creation of the IRG and we urge our members and the rest of industry to support the group. In the wake of these tragic events, industry needs to come together to ensure that such incidents are not repeated. As an industry, we need to ensure that buildings are safe, sustainable and provide an environment which allows the people that inhabit them to thrive.”
