Allied protection has successfully teamed up with Fire Risk Assessment specialists, Frankham Consultancy Group, to provide the winning bid for a recent Camden Council ITT involving intrusive fire risk inspections. The contract involves 750 street side residential properties and their common areas. Pairing our systems engineers with Frankham’s highly qualified risk assessors allows us to provide compliance solutions on a case by case basis; with costed recommendations, the rationale behind them and a review of suitable alternatives.
Camden will benefit from a multi-disciplinary approach which shrinks the time lag between risk identification and resolution, whilst their residents will benefit from reduced inconvenience as all of the Borescope holes will be made good at the end of each inspection. The contract will be carried out throughout 2014 and is worth approximately £180,000 to APL. We are optimistic that the benefits of a multi-disciplinary approach will appeal to social landlords in future tenders and look forward to working closely with Frankham to secure further opportunities.
