Bolton fire: Anger over ‘cladding lottery’ after blaze at student flats


The real issue here is D+B, a procurement system which incentivises the derogation of quality; in design, in materiality and in construction methodology. When the contractor is judge and jury of the quality of their own workmanship, and their main goal is maximising their own profits, we will continue to see this flagrant disregard for safety in favour of making a quick buck.
