GUNN have been appointed on a two-year programme involving the replacement of facades and insulation on several high-rise accommodation buildings owned by the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government at Meath Crescent, Bethnal Green East London by leading main contractor StanLil. The large blocks of flats reach over 25m in height and contain over 200 flats. 

GUNN was appointed following the success of a previous recladding project for StanLil. The GUNN Team will work with StanLil to remove all the non-fire-rated systems and insulation, including external envelopes, cladding systems, and insulation through all five buildings – brick, render, cladding – whilst ensuring new insulation meets current energy guidelines and provides enhanced weatherproofing and insulating performance and compliance with fire safety construction regulations. 

StanLil is an experienced external cladding contractor who have installed external cladding systems for schools, domestic properties, factories, and office buildings over the past two decades. 

The UK Government has requested that all unsafe ACM and non-ACM cladding is replaced and in many cases is providing grants for the building owners and responsible parties.   

Ministry of Housing Communities and Local Govt (MHCLG) now called Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC) 

Duncan Gunn said: 

“This is a fantastic project for the whole team here at GUNN working with StanLil on our second complex and important project together, and further demonstrating our knowledge, experience, and capability in improving these large housing developments”
