FOI: Large Panel System (LPS) buildings

The request was successful.

Dear Bristol City Council,

Following the letter sent by the Department for Communities and Local Government regarding the safety of Large Panel System (LPS) buildings, can you provide details of the last time you carried out a structural survey of LPS blocks, what the survey found, and whether any action was taken as a result.

Can you also provide a list of the names of LPS blocks the organisation owns, and which LPS blocks have been demolished while under your organisation's control.

Yours faithfully,

Basia Cummings

You sent us a Freedom of Information request on 03/08/2018

Your request number is CRN00181009

Our reply to your request is:  

Bristol City Council owns five blocks that are believed to be of
Large Panel System Construction:

Barton House, BS5 9SJ

Charleton House, BS2 0DS

John Cozens House, BS2 0DX

Haviland House, BS2 0DT

Langton House, BS2 0DR


3 blocks, also believed to be LPS construction, have been demolished

Glendare House

Rockingham House

Wintour House


In 2017 we carried out a search of our records and were able to
positively confirm that strengthening works and concrete repairs of
each of these blocks (including those since demolished) had been
carried out during and shortly after 1970.


We have no records of any structural surveys carried out of these
blocks, although the 1970 records suggest that structural surveys
were carried out at that time.

This response should answer your request in full.
