£1.35bn building and fire safety framework launched

21 Apr 23 A new framework has been launched for public sector organisations requiring any services relate to building safety compliance.

The £1.35bn building and fire safety framework, which goes live on Monday 24th April, will be managed by Pretium Frameworks, on behalf of the Hyde Group housing association.

It has been designed and procured jointly by the Hyde Group and procurement advisers Echelon Consultancy.

Running for four years, it builds on the Pretium and Hyde’s first-generation fire safety services framework, with services to enable compliance with the Building Safety Act in addition to the fire safety-related works and services from the original framework.

“Our first-generation framework was very much focused on fire safety,” said Pretium Frameworks director Jessica John. “During the lifetime of that framework the Building Safety Act came into being, providing an opportunity to reframe the new offer to build in additional works and services, supporting housing providers in all areas of building safety compliance.”

Liz Oliver, Hyde’s safer homes and neighbourhoods director, added: “We’re investing significantly in building and fire safety-related works and procured this framework to allow easier access to suppliers to deliver these works and services. The framework was set up with excellent partners and will be available for all public sector organisations to use.

“It was developed using expert specialist advice from the fire safety sector, and through this framework we’re able to deliver quality services, making sure we manage and address building and fire safety issues accordingly and get better value for money.”

The four-year framework is split into 11 workstreams, delivered by main contractors and specialists, and nine of these are further broken down into regional lots:
