Housing association sets up fire safety deals

A host of consultants have scored places on two fire safety frameworks worth £10m.

The deals, which have been awarded by housing association L&Q, cover fire engineering and inspection services across its properties for the next four years.


One of the housing association’s upcoming schemes is a 441-home project at a former car dealership site in Brentford, west London, designed by Hawkins\Brown

Firms to bag spots on the frameworks include Ridge, Hoare Lea, PRP Architects and Hydrock.

Three companies, CHPK, International Fire Consultants and Vemco Consulting, landed places on both deals.

The work has been designed to provide fire engineering and inspection services for L&Q’s self-delivered new-build projects.

L&Q is one of the largest providers of affordable housing in the UK, housing over 250,000 people in more than 95,000 homes, primarily across London and the South-east of England.

Earlier this month L&Q announced that Fiona Fletcher-Smith would succeed David Montague as its chief executive with immediate effect.

Fletcher-Smith was previously L&Q’s group director of development and sales.
