The Grenfell Tower Inquiry – Update (Jan 2022)

17th Jan 2022

January 2022 Update:

Stephanie Barwise QC, Omar Eljadi and Dalton Hale (Atkin Chambers) and Marie Claire O’Kane (4 New Square) have been representing one of two groups of bereaved and survivors in the Grenfell Tower Inquiry.

Hearings for Phase 1¹ began on 21 May 2018 and concluded on 12 December 2018. The Chairman published his Phase 1 report on 30 October 2019 which adopted Stephanie Barwise QC’s submissions asking the Chairman to find the cladding system non-compliant with functional requirement B4(1) of the Building Regulations on the basis that it promoted rather than “adequately resisted” flame spread. The Inquiry found that both the cladding panels and the cladding system as a whole non-compliant with B4(1). (See “Phase 1 report overview – non-compliance with Building Regulations”).

Phase 2 started in July 2020 and is focusing on the remainder of the list of issues following which the final report will be written and subsequently published.
