Fire safety & cladding training

Gateley Legal

As a professional services group, we have both legal and consulting specialists who advise across a range of fire safety and cladding issues, both proactively and reactively depending on what support our clients need and what situation they find themselves in.

Who do our fire cladding & safety specialists help?

We support both regional and national housebuilders as well as residential developers with fire cladding issues throughout the UK.

Training to support all your teams

Since the Grenfell Tower tragedy, fire cladding issues have had a significant impact on the construction industry and residential property sector. Many parties have been caught up in legal disputes, changing Government guidance and complex arguments about external wall fire safety compliance.

Developers are under significant legal, commercial and political pressures; adding the potential for personal liability and corporate manslaughter into the mix in the event of a worst-case scenario fire, developers are understandably struggling to achieve consistency and control. With this in mind, we have set out a training framework to try and prevent and elevate the associated issues and pressures in relation to Fire Safety and Cladding.

What will you learn in each module?

The training is spilt into 4 modules which include:

  • planning
  • design and pre-construction
  • construction
  • sales and after care
  • director/officer responsibilities & enforcement

The modules will be delivered virtually, or if required, in person. Each module lasts approximately 2 hours over the course of an afternoon and can be delivered virtually or in person depending on your preference.
