Cladding Consulting Ltd was set up to assist the huge number of leaseholders who live in buildings which are now classified as dangerous, due to the presence of combustible material on their external wall systems.
We have guided numerous clients through the hoops and obstacles in order to apply for remediation from one of the Government funds set up so lessees would not have to bear the cost of paying to replace the ACM or Non-ACM cladding on their buildings.
The application process is long, multi faceted and requires co-ordination of a number of different elements and people in order to get to the point that a project is considered for funding approval.
We are now experts in that process having taken several clients from the point that they realized they may have an issue to the point where we have received full funding approval. These projects are now starting on site and funds are starting to flow.
Our projects generally range from £1m to £5m.
Applying for remediation is only a small part of the process. We will stay involved right through to the conclusion of the works. We set up individual Client trust accounts for each project.
We have a team of accountants very experienced in handling large sums of money providing clear detailed reports and making payments in accordance with preset conditions.
We work with Managing Agents, RTM companies, Boards of Directors, and leaseholders.
