The Inquiry has instructed Roger Howkins, Arup Group, as an expert witness.

Roger will be producing a report for Phase 2 of the Inquiry's work, considering: relevant legislation and guidance for fire lifts and firefighting lifts and whether the lift in Grenfell Tower as installed/refurbished were compliant; if the Tenant Management Organisation’s policy on firefighting lifts complied with the relevant standards; If not, to what extent did they fail to comply and what impact would this have had on their functionality; If the lifts were maintained to an appropriate standard and in compliance with the relevant standards and industry practice; and how the lifts performed on the night of the fire and reasons for any failure to perform?
