The LHC Fire Safety framework will take into account the conclusions of the Hackett & Knight reports and Paul Stollard’s Scottish Consultation document and interim guidance that followed the Grenfell fire to provide a comprehensive range of fire safety procurement solutions.
It will comprise a suite of specialist fire safety services to existing domestic and non-domestic buildings, and will be split into the following workstreams:
- FS1-C: Fire Consultants – including Fire Risk Assessments
- FS1-P: Passive Fire Protection – including compartmentalisation and fire doors maintenance or replacement
- FS1-S: Fire Suppressors – including Sprinkler systems
- FS1-D: Fire Detection – including Alarm and Lighting systems
4 separate Contract Notices will be published weeks apart, starting with Fire Consultants and Risk Assessors, which is now open to tender, with a view to launching remaining workstreams in Q1 2019.
The Contract Notices will be published across all OJEU journals. The tender documents will then be available through the LHC portal hosted by ProContract where, if you haven’t already, you can pre-register.
