Procurement Strategy - Spandrel Panels Replacement Works

Replacement Works of Spandrel Panels to comply with MHCLG ‘Advice Note 19’ to all owners of buildings 18 meters in height or above.

Reason for urgency:


This procurement is time-critical and needs to be procured because the spandrel panels for the identified properties may, under certain conditions, enable the spread of flames. The replacement of spandrel panel systems would address issues of fire safety with panels and problems of poor installation when panels were previously fitted. There are no repairing / remedial solutions available that would retain the panels and negate the risk. Therefore, critical remedial works must be undertaken to remedy the situation.
