Exclusive: Grenfell Tower architect Studio E goes into liquidation

Comment

‘And someone needs to held accountable for the fact that the Building Regulations in England were not changed to protect life...’. That would be BRE (privatised in 1997), who advised government that the relevant building regulations did not need to change a year before Grenfell, while certifying flammable cladding products for commercial gain. As the buck stops at the top, it will be the CEO at that time who you are looking for to defend a charge of alleged corporate manslaughter. Neil Crawford raised the issue of negligent building regulations in his evidence to the inquiry.
