Main Contractor: J. Murphy & Son
Contract value: £1.5 million
Works description: The contract was split into 2 packages covering over 30 tower blocks across the Borough and Bankside area of Southwark.
- To carry out a detailed survey of over 2,000 existing fire doors. We undertook this work through the BM Trada accreditation, which is reviewed annually.
- Manufacture and install approximately 2000 fire doors in 5 months to meet an extremely demanding construction programme.
- All doors were manufactured and installed under BM Trada’s Q-Mark scheme which provides chain of custody compliance processes providing the client with complete peace of mind.
Following the successful delivery of this project, Bryan McNamee, Murphy’s Contracts Manager said:
“London Fire Solutions manufactured and installed all the fire rated front entrance doors and communal screens on our recent Fire Risk Assessment Packages for the London Borough of Southwark. Works were carried out on 37 blocks over a very short programme period. London Fire Solutions proved to be an able sub-contractor who, despite the intensity of the programme, performed well, producing quality doors and installations. They demonstrated a proactive approach to any difficulties on the project and integrated well within our team.”
