With National Fire Door Safety Week hitting the headlines, we thought we’d take a look at some of the projects our teams are working on across the country, which underline our clients’ commitment to best practice when it comes to protecting residents from the potentially fatal consequences of fire.
As part of our 10-year framework with Anchor Housing, England’s largest not-for-profit provider of housing and care for older people, we have been carrying out Fire Assessment Works (FRA) for the past 18 months to the value of £1million with a further £1million investment pending. The projects include door upgrades, door replacements and sealing penetration breaches, with fire curtain works to protect loft and void areas planned for the future. The works are being carried out in partnership with the London Fire Authority. @FDSafetyWeek
Wandle Housing Association
In addition to our £4.1 million programme to deliver kitchen and bathroom upgrades on behalf of south London housing association, Wandle Housing, we’ve also started to assist with their FRA works including door upgrades and door replacements in properties across the capital. . @FDSafetyWeek
Shepherds Bush Housing Group
Now in our fifth year of a planned maintenance contract with Shepherds Bush Housing Group, covering cyclical redecorations, repairs and kerb appeal works across their bespoke Victorian and Edwardian housing stock, we’ve recently extended the services to include urgent FRA works requested by the client. Swift mobilisation was critical and the door replacement and upgrade works are currently ongoing. @FDSafetyWeek
