Rydon Maintenance Press Statement – Grenfell Tower
15th June 2017

We welcome the announcement of the Public Inquiry into the tragic incident at Grenfell Tower. In the immediate term, we have offered our full help and support to the relevant authorities, who are investigating the causes. We would also like to praise the tireless efforts and bravery of the emergency services who continue to deal with this tragic incident.

Rydon Maintenance Limited completed a partial refurbishment of the building in the summer of 2016 for KCTMO (Kensington and Chelsea Tenant Management Organisation) on behalf of the Council, which met all required building regulations - as well as fire regulation and health & safety standards - and handover took place when the completion notice was issued by Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea building control. 

“I am personally shocked and devastated by what has happened at Grenfell Tower and my thoughts are with the families and friends of those affected. We have been working with local authorities for nearly forty years and safety and quality are integral to everything we do at Rydon. I will do all I can to assist in this investigation in order to establish what caused this tragedy.  In light of the Public Inquiry, we cannot make any further comment at this time.”

Robert Bond, CEO, Rydon Group.
