Fusion21 member L&Q is currently undergoing fire upgrade works across its housing stock after accessing our Whole house framework.
The housing association awarded two contractors - Wates Living Space and R&B Decorators - a contract worth £4million, to undertake fire compartmentation, fire stopping and fire door upgrade works across its housing stock.
Set for completion in March 2019, the contract works began in July 2017 separated into two locations: North of the Thames –delivered by R&B Decorators and South of the Thames – delivered by Wates.
An L&Q spokesperson said: “The safety of our tenants is paramount and working with Fusion21 we have been able to access an OJEU compliant route to market – whilst installing fire protection measures which will help residents to remain safe in their homes.”
Gary Stanfield, Framework Manager (Construction) at Fusion21said: “The flexibility to appoint multiple contractors to this project is enabling L&Q to upgrade housing stock in different geographical locations – all at the same time, whilst importantly safeguarding housing stock from the risk of fire.”
