Grenfell Tower inquiry turns down RIBA's offer to help


I am an Architectural Technologist and I too am disappointed that neither a technologist or architect is included within the Expert Witnesses or Assessors. I also applied for CP status as an individual, but was refused. Key professional institutions such as RIBA have much to offer the Inquiry and from a different perspective to engineers and fire specialists, and are therefore in a position to make a valuable contribution as to what went wrong. As an professionally practicing individual, I have been carrying out some research and have produced some reports for the Inquiry - so there are ways of doing things - but like RIBA and others involved in the architecture profession, I would have preferred to have seen formal inclusion. The issues being investigated are important and will have an impact on our professional lives, as well as those of our clients
