In order to maximise the success of the application through the BSF process, we also developed and formulated the employer’s requirements and contract documents, coordinating the design team, contract administration and agreeing quality control, sign off and handover procedures on site through our clerk of works.

The design was developed following further investigations and Capital’s in house design team coordinated the most suitable options for remediation. Our designs were developed, in tandem, with third party fire engineers and approved inspectors. The project was procured via a tender two stage Design and Build approach. The contractors is engaged via a pre-construction services agreement to work closely with the design team to develop and agree the design solution and contract sum to take forward to the Building Safety Fund application. The project is due to start on site in June 2021 with works due to be completed in June 2022.

The New Haddo Estate comprises a variety of buildings each with their own particular issues. We worked closely with our Fire Engineer to determine holistic solutions in order to achieve best value, within the shortest timeframes. This was particularly important where elements of remediation were not going to be funded by the BSF and costs passed on to leaseholders.
