关于格伦费尔大厦
Grenfell Tower is on Latimer Road, in west London.
格伦费尔大厦在伦敦西区的拉米特路。
It's part of the Lancaster West Estate, a social housing complex of almost 1,000 homes, in the borough of Kensington and Chelsea.
这座大楼是政府福利房小区西兰开斯特小区的一部分,位于肯辛顿和切尔西区的西兰开斯特小区,有近1000所公寓。
The tower block is near Westfield shopping centre in White City and the A40 - a major route for traffic entering and leaving the west of London.
这座塔楼临近白城的韦斯特菲尔德购物中心,以及出入西伦敦的交通主干道A40。
Grenfell Tower was built in 1974 by Kensington and Chelsea Borough Council.
格伦费尔大厦由肯辛顿和切尔西区市政厅于1974年建造。
An £8.6m refurbishment - which was part of a wider transformation of the estate - was completed by Rydon Construction in May last year. Work included new exterior cladding, replacement windows and a communal heating system.
去年五月刚刚由莱顿公司耗资860万英镑对这座大楼进行了整修,这是该小区大规模翻新工程的一部分。整修包括在外立面镀上保温层、更换窗户以及民用供热系统。
There was also extensive remodelling of the bottom four floors, creating nine additional homes, and improvements to communal facilities.
当时还对一至四层进行了大规模的改造,增加了9间公寓,并对公共设施进行了完善。
Rydon said it was "shocked to hear of the devastating fire" adding that the work "met all required building control, fire regulation and health & safety standards".
莱顿公司说“听到这场大火的消息时很震惊”,并补充称,这次整修工作“符合所有建筑管理、防火规范和健康安全标准的要求”。
It later issued a new statement, removing the previous mention of the building meeting fire regulation standards, instead saying the project met "all required building regulations".
该公司稍后又发布了一则新声明,把先前提到的符合防火规范的字眼移除,改称项目符合“所有建筑规范的要求”。
The local Grenfell Action Group had claimed, before and during the refurbishment, that the block constituted a fire risk and residents had warned that access to the site for emergency vehicles was "severely restricted".
当地居民组织格伦费尔行动小组在整修前和整修过程中反复强调,这个小区存在火灾风险,并警告居民紧急通道设计糟糕,急救车“难以进入”。
In February 2013 residents warned fire safety equipment, including fire extinguishers, had not been tested for 12 months.
2013年2月,居民警告说,包括灭火器在内的消防设备已经有12个月没有经过检测了。
KCTMO said it was aware that concerns had been raised historically by residents and they will form part of its investigations.
大厦管理部门KCTMO说,他们了解到,以往曾有居民提出关于安全隐患的担忧,这些将被列入调查范围。
