New construction industry poll shows support for a ban on using combustible materials on mid and high-rise and sensitive buildings.
The new survey by leading research consultancy Populus, commissioned by ROCKWOOL, polled senior staff working in the construction, civil engineering and architectural industries who have responsibility for specifying or detailing construction materials.
ROCKWOOL Group Senior Vice President Gilles Maria: “It’s encouraging to see the UK construction industry advocating so strongly for banning combustible materials on mid-, high-rise, and sensitive buildings. The government should take note of the industry sentiment and act quickly to require the use of non-combustible cladding and insulation materials on these types of buildings”.
