Client: Southwark Council
Main Contractor: A & E Elkins
Contract Value: £52k
Works description: Install frame armour systems to 66 front entrance doors and replace the leafs of these doors across 3 residential blocks.
Summary of works:
- Supplying and installing our own in-house designed steel frame armour section which fits over existing door frames, we were able to renew just the entrance door rather than the adjacent window thereby saving the client in excess of £30k.
- Manufacturing and installing the door leaf to the residents’ design and colour choice. We also fire tested a grooved pattern door for this contract, something that the leaf manufacturer hadn’t tested. This allowed us to increase the amount of design options without affecting residents’ safety.
- Working with A&E Elkins to fit the new doors to the residents’ appointment requirements, installing up to 6 doors a day.
