New Fire Safety Work awarded

Posted on

Our longstanding client The Hyde Group is investing significantly in fire safety related works and, as part of this investment, has developed a bespoke Framework to allow easier access to service providers to deliver fire safety related works.

Hyde provides homes and services to over 95,000 customers. Hyde’s stock is of mixed tenure, including general needs residents, vulnerable/ elderly residents and a high proportion of leaseholders.

Hyde’s Framework will ensure best practice and innovation; that customer service and resident engagement are at the heart of fire safety works and that the Framework is adaptable to meet the diverse and changing needs across the sectors in which it operates.

Having been accepted on to the Framework, Axis was invited to tender for, and was successful in winning, the following Lots: Fire Doors; Fire Safety Signage; Emergency Lighting; Fire Proofing and Stopping; Electrical Inspection and Testing; Electrical Works and Cladding.

The scope of works will include: supply, installation, removal, and repair of fire doors; installation, removal, and design of fire safety signage; installation, removal, and maintenance of emergency lighting; provision of fire stopping works and services; provision of cyclical and reactive electrical testing, servicing, and maintenance services; and the supply and installation of cladding.

Axis was able to provide examples of our proven experience for each Lot across a variety of different properties from bungalows to high rise buildings. We were also asked to submit examples of where we had delivered deliver value, innovation and the highest standards of quality safety and efficiency through our integrated approach and high quality services.

Our recent works with Peabody, Swan, Estuary and Hackney Homes, for example, as part of our wider FRA works – provided detailed examples of our successes in these criteria; our evidences spanned from replacing intumescent strips to complete building cladding.

Hyde is one of the largest housing associations working in England, owning or managing circa 50,000 homes in London, Kent, Surrey, Sussex, Hampshire, the East of England and East Midlands.
