Over 10,000 UK Buildings Could Need Inspection of Sandwich Panels

Partly due to recent fires of insulated buildings in the UK, structures constructed with insulated sandwich panels could be in need of an inspection, and if the panels are deemed unsafe, they will need to be retrofitted. Authorities estimate that over 10,000 public buildings, schools, and hospitals could be in need of an inspection. Current building codes allow for potentially combustible core materials to be used.

This could possibly become the largest building safety inspection in the UK since asbestos checks in the ’80s.
