We were awarded the contract for Periodic Inspection, Servicing, Maintenance and Repair of Fire Alarm and Emergency Lighting Installations for Clanmil Housing Association, Abbeyfield and Wesley Housing Association, Connswater Homes, Habinteg Housing Association (Ulster), Craigowen Housing Association, North Belfast Housing Association and Arbour Housing to meet their obligations as social landlords.
The scope of works comprises periodic servicing, inspection, testing and certification, routine maintenance, response maintenance (including 24/7/365 emergency call-outs), void property works and mutual exchanges, major works consisting of upgrading, installation or renewals, call handling, and technical inspections.
We provide works across a range of fire alarm/detection systems, emergency lighting installations, firefighting equipment, sprinkler systems, dry risers, automatic smoke vents, and disabled refuge intercom systems to communal areas of social housing & HMO blocks, sheltered schemes, commercial self-contained and communal properties, and commercial offices at over 210 sites across Northern Ireland. As part of the contract, we have also delivered fire alarm installations and renewals across a number of sheltered/supported living schemes.
Our procedures for working in occupied properties focus on protecting tenants and minimising risks/disruption, with this element of the works crucial given the nature of supported living sites. Our contract management ethos focuses planning, programming, resourcing, supply chain management, quality control, client/tenant liaison, and the provision of all asset data and certification. As principal contractor we are responsible for ensuring workmanship standards and adherence to health and safety regulations, being responsible each element of delivery, including planning, managing, monitoring, testing and commissioning, reporting and providing certification.
