The completion ceremony took place on Friday 17th November 2017 for the recladding of Clements Court, a high-rise residential tower block owned by London Borough of Hounslow (LBH). Cllr Steve Curran (Council Leader) secured the last non-combustible panel. The combustible ACM cladding was removed within 10 days of the Council recognising that the building was at risk and entirely re-clad within 18 weeks.

To provide further reassurance to our customers, we are pleased to provide details of the successful fire test carried out at the BRE Garston as follows:-
Given the deep concerns of the residents and Hounslow Borough Council the project needed to be expedited. From the Council first contacting d+b facades on the Friday, access to the building was erected by Tuesday and all external combustible materials removed making the building fire-safe by the following Tuesday, with a sample of the recladding proposal also in place for the planners’ approval.
The fire performance of cladding systems has understandably come under intense scrutiny. By sharing publicly our personal experience, we hope to provide reassurance to users of our non-combustible aluminium rainscreen system regarding its fire safety.
