HMRC staff move into Ruskin Square and MoJ into Apollo and Lunar Houses

Note that this will include existing HMRC staff in Croydon. The Ministry of Justice is planning to relocate many of its staff to Apollo and Lunar Houses to a total of 1,500 according to the design and access statement with the current planning application (17/03109/FUL). The intention is to erect a three storey external fire escape stair to Apollo House; installation of ventilation grilles to the lower window sections at third floor level to the Apollo House pod; installation of two new glazed security access pods to the staff reception area in Lunar House.

The proposed materials are: ‘RAL 9010 PPC perforated aluminium cladding panels. White RAL 9010 prefabricated steel stair sections with RAL 7012 grey non-slip surface and contrasting nosing. RAL 7012 grey steel structure and stair balustrading.’

In searching for information about RAL 9010 cladding I came across this assessment of fire risk and cladding from 2016.
