MHCLG Call for Evidence: Waking Watch

17 July 2020

The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government has asked IRPM to help them understand the costs of maintaining waking watches on buildings with suspect or unsafe external wall systems.

If you are currently managing buildings that have a waking watch, could you please complete the survey as soon as possible? There is an option for responses to be anonymised if that is preferred.

Government has previously asked ARMA to carry out a similar survey and if your firm is an ARMA member, it may have already responded. Again, you can confirm this on the survey.

IRPM members work for over 1000 firms a majority of which are not ARMA members, hence government is keen to hear from IRPM professionals.

Responses are required by the close of play Friday 24th July 2020.

To submit your response please here.

If you have any issues with the response button below or any questions, please email

Yours sincerely

Andrew Bulmer FIRPM FRICS
