You didn't do your "responsible job" very well when you worked in
Scottish building control, did you?
"An investigation into the emergency closure of 17 schools in Edinburgh
built under private finance initiative arrangements has revealed a
series of other potentially fatal safety defects at PFI schools"
"Prof John Cole, a construction industry expert, said brick walls at
four other schools in Scotland fell down in high winds in very similar
circumstances to the collapse of an external wall at Oxgangs primary
school in Edinburgh in January 2016"
"In his 250-page report to the council, Cole said the subsequent safety
inspections of those schools revealed the builders had failed to make
them fire safe by leaving gaps and unsealed areas which could have
allowed a fire to spread unchecked"

look fuck face no school to my knowledge in Renfrewshire (not east
Renfrewshire) had a problem like that.......and I was never a drinker I'm
sure you being an IT fanny can gain access to my medical records and check
for youself .......but why bother you and your buddies cole and reay can
just spread rumours .......p.s. you know fuck all about building......
That is scary. If it was the right grade for that purpose it wouldn't do
that - I think they need to analyse these foam samples to see which fire
retardant chemistry (if any) has been used. Burning them just shows a
fail and as of last night they had seen 100% failure rate of both foams
and plastic core cladding. How did the fire safety standards get so bad?
There are multiple sorts about. I think the one most commonly on sale to
DIY users is a variant of FR5000 - the properly fire retardant one.
The wisdom apparently has been that provided it is a block between foil
to prevent access to oxygen it doesn't need to be very fire suppressed.
And to be fair if it is installed as cavity insulation in between two
fundamentally inert brick/breezeblock wall skins that is about true.
But install that same material against concrete with a cheap thin and
also flammable rain cladding on the outside and all bets are off.
Making it 60m high also allows it to make its own updraft and things
will always burn a lot better when there is forced air ventilation.
