Firms alerted to £1.3bn fire safety work scheme

A social housing provider is tendering for a £1.35bn framework to provide building and fire safety work.

Hyde Group, which provides around 50,000 affordable homes, is looking for suppliers, contractors and assessors to carry out fire safety works over the next four years.

Although the group works predominantly in London and the south-east, the scheme will cover various regions across England and Wales. These include the East Midlands, east of England, London, north-east, north-west, south-east, south-west, Wales, West Midlands, Yorkshire and the Humber.

The framework will run from May 2023 and is divided into 11 lots based on national or regional work, and on the nature of work supplied.

Suppliers sought will carry out work related to fire door supply, installation and remediation, in addition to fire risk assessment and fire engineering.

Emergency lighting, sprinkler systems and other forms of automatic water fire responses, alarm systems, testing systems, and mechanical and electrical work is also being tendered for.

Public sector bodies and government agencies will be able to access contractors through this specialist framework.

More information for suppliers can be found here, with firms given until 10 October to submit prequalification documents.

Recently, a number of London boroughs notified suppliers of a £400m mechanical and electrical framework, which included fire safety work.
