Lacrosse Docklands Tower Ordered to Be Stripped off Combustible Cladding

Combustible cladding on the Docklands high rise ravaged by a fire a few years ago has been deemed as a risk to hundreds of residents who will have to fork out $8.6 million to have the cladding removed and replaced.

The residents have already incurred $6.5 million in expenses to fix the damage from the 2014 fire which tore through the high rise, spread even faster because of the use of sub-standard, cheap imported cladding.

The Building Appeals Board denied a request by builders to have sprinklers installed instead of removing the cladding, however  Metropolitan Fire Brigade warned even if additional wall sprinklers were installed, the fire could spread significantly before the sprinklers were even activated.
