Fire Risk Assessments have highlighted that a  number of blocks in the HRA social housing stock require wholesale replacement of fire doors.  This would include:

This would include a fire door replacement programme in blocks where the Fire Risk Assessment has highlighted this as a requirement and ad hoc replacements when doors become damaged. The value of this contract is expected to be in the region of £3.9 Million;


2.  To delegate authority to the Director of Place following consultation with the Portfolio Holder for Housing, together with the Director of Finance to enter into the procurement and implement the contract to the value specified.
