St Pancras Way fails fire safety tests after Grenfell Tower review
A review was ordered by Unite
St Pancras Way is one of six student accommodation buildings that has failed to meet fire safety standards.
Unite, the biggest provider of student accommodation in the UK, who run St Pancras Way, are running the risk of closing 600 rooms and forking out £2 million to replace the cladding, according to The Times.
St Pancras Way in Camden has 572 beds, some of which are rented out by UCL students.
In a statement posted on the Unite Students website, they have said that after a ‘detailed inspection’ of the six buildings, local fire and rescue authorities have claimed that the buildings can continue to be occupied. However, additional fire prevention and reporting measures are to be implemented as an extra precaution. This includes 24-hour on-site staff trained in fire safety and evacuation.
