Novotel Olympic Way

The online magazine Inside Housing LINK mentioned the Novotel in Olympic Way, Wembley Park, as one of the buildings that still has aluminium composite material (ACM) cladding in a review of the issue on Friday.

Harvey Facades. the specialist cladding sub-contractor that installed cladding on Grenfell Tower also worked on the Novotel building which contains residences as well as hotel rooms.

The product used on the hotel cladding was Alcubond consisting of a Polyethylene and Aluminium construction. This is an extract from the Material Safety Data Sheet LINK:

Cladding on Novotel, Wembley Park, England


This is a sensitive issue as we are approaching the third anniversary of the Grenfell fire and attention is focused on the number of buildings that still contain similar material.

Could you let me know of your current assessment of any danger/risk posed by the ACM and measures taken to mitigate the risk as well as any plans to remove and replace the cladding.
No response has been received as yet.

Cladding on the adjacent Unite Student Accommmodation has been removed and replaced.
