Whole House Building Safety Contract

Agreement sought to award to a single contractor a whole house building safety contract to be managed within Technical Services for GBC housing stock, who will carry out multiple disciplinary works within individual properties to reduce risk of prosecution and non compliance of statutory regulations. As well as economies of scale to create savings. This is anticipated to be a 3 + 1 + 1 contract (5 years total). To be awarded through a framework via mini competition.
(This is a supplementary contract which will be awarded to an already procured contractor, to support the additional costs which were unforeseen but have now been identified during inspections and surveys carried out since the original contract commenced, meaning that contract will be significantly overspent. This expenditure does not exceed internal budgets and have been previously agreed. In addition, this expenditure will ensure that we meet our statutory and legal requirements, and keep our properties within decent home standards.)
