RIBA President responds to the Grenfell Tower fire

Jane Duncan responds to the fire at Grenfell Tower in London.

15 June 2017

RIBA President Jane Duncan said:

“The fire at Grenfell Tower is an awful tragedy and my thoughts are with the victims, all those affected and the heroes who responded.

“Speculation about the fire’s cause or spread, prior to a thorough investigation, would be inappropriate.

Fire and people safety are absolutely critical in all buildings, which is why there must be an urgent public inquiry to fully understand how this tragedy occurred.”
