CONTRACT AWARD REPORT: Controlled Access Programme

The Controlled Access Programme involves procuring a Contractor for the replacement of ageing door entry systems throughout the Council’s housing stock. Through this procurement the Council proposes to offer residents the opportunity to replace their existing systems on a programmed basis with modern day systems that allow residents to be called on their smartphones and incorporates the ability to view live video of visitors and engage in two-way conversations whether within the building or off-site using the mobile telephone network.


Reasons for urgency:


The Contractor needs to be mobilised immediately because many of the Door Entry Systems serving the Communal Entrance Doors to residential buildings throughout the Borough are aged over 30 years old and in need of urgent replacement.  Therefore, the project team would like to commence some critical works by the 1st week of November 2021.
