As the second phase of the Grenfell Tower Inquiry gets underway, new experts from the field of architecture are joining the panel. It’s in recognition of the multiple interconnected factors that led to the tragic loss of 72 lives.

Although the process has been described as complex and confusing, it’s vital that all aspects which contributed to the disaster are explored. We’re particularly interested in the role of fire doors, the adequacy, or otherwise, of regulations and possible changes. That’s why we’ve invited Michael Skelding of the Door and Hardware Federation (DHF) to be the guest speaker at our CHeSS Roadshow.

The DHF is one of the bodies that make up the Technical Fire Door Group which is advising the Inquiry’s Expert Advisory Panel. It is, therefore, ideal to unpick some of the complexity, to separate the hype from the facts and to give as clear a picture as possible about the use of fire doors in High-Risk Residential Buildings. Even though the Inquiry is ongoing, it’s important that we understand the very latest because a slight change in specification could be a matter of life or death.

Although we’ll be exploring very serious issues at the CHeSS Roadshow, the atmosphere will be relaxed and informal. You’ll be able to learn from experts with the knowledge and skills required to turn complex issues into ones we’re all competent to handle.
