Action is set to be taken after a medical research building in Dundee was found to have the same cladding as was on the Grenfell Tower block.
The Clinical Research Centre at Ninewells Hospital was found to be clad with aluminium composite material.
The Grenfell Tower fire broke out in June at the 24-storey block of public housing flats in North Kensington, London.
The incident caused 71 deaths and more than 70 injuries.
Investigators found that the fire had started in a fridge freezer on the third floor and had spread due to the exterior cladding being highly flammable.
The research centre is owned by the University of Dundee. A spokesman for the university confirmed the building was clad with the aluminium composite.
The spokesman said: “As part of checks of our entire estate, it was found that there was ACM (aluminium composite material) cladding on the Clinical Research Centre on the Ninewells campus.
“A contractor has been appointed to remove and replace the cladding, and the work is expected to be completed today.
“The ACM cladding is on a building that is deemed low-risk, being a two-storey building which is under the 18-metre height limit and is fitted with a fire detection system and has multiple exits.”
A source told the Tele he was “shocked” to hear that the building was clad with ACM.
He said: “I fear for the safety of people working there and anyone else near the hospital.
“It is scary to think what could happen — we all saw Grenfell.
“It is not just safety, it is the financial side of things.
“It seems to be one thing after another and you wonder where the finances are going to come from to sort out this situation. You would think it would be better spent elsewhere.”
The Clinical Research Centre is described as “an exceptional collaboration between the University of Dundee and NHS Tayside” on the Tayside Medical Science Centre website.
An NHS Tayside spokeswoman declined to comment to the Tele on the basis that the building is owned by the university.
The final inquests for those who died in the Grenfell fire were opened and adjourned at Westminster’s Coroner’s Court last Wednesday.
All the victims have now been identified by police.
A memorial service will be held at London’s St Paul’s Cathedral on December 14.
