Industry-leading Building Safety Unit launched

BECG Group has launched a new specialist Building Safety Unit, which brings together award-winning and multi-disciplined teams, dedicated to providing strategic counsel to clients affected by the fire and building safety agenda across the UK.

Despite government and industry efforts to find solutions since the Grenfell Tower tragedy in 2017 -policymakers, developers, managing agents and housing associations are all required to seek solutions to tackle the cladding scandal whilst navigating legislative changes and economic challenges brought on by Covid-19.

The new Building Safety Unit will offer clients a multidisciplinary service to meet the growing challenge of fire and building safety – from strategic leadership to integrated support across crisis communications, specialist resident and community engagement, media relations, communications, and government relations.

The new unit will draw on experts from across the Group, including BECG, CrowdControlHQ and Liberty One Communications.

The Unit will be led by Jenny Riddell Carpenter, who has led crisis communications for high profile building safety issues across the UK and oversees fire and building safety and remediation communications for some of the UK’s largest housing associations and housebuilders.

BECG CEO Stephen Pomeroy said:

Building Safety is one of the most prominent issues facing our clients and the sector. Our dedicated team are expertly placed to help organisations navigate this difficult landscape, providing expert counsel and award-winning communications support.
