Fire Safety Improvement Works and Asbestos Management

On 26 October 2018 a Cabinet Member Decision was approved authorising officers to award contracts in relation to works to carry out fire safety and asbestos management works to Cox House and Horton House in Fulham Reach Ward.

The work was to be carried out in two phases with the first phase estimated to cost £119,000 (£51,000 and £68,000 respectively) and the second phase estimated to cost £856,000 (£361,000 and £445,000 respectively plus £50,000 project management costs). The works for phase one were higher than the original budget with a contract value of £188,680. Approval is sought for this additional spend. Further, following the completion of the Phase 1 works it has become apparent that more work is required to both Cox and Horton House. This report sets out the extra work which is required and the increased costs associated with that.
