Procurement Strategy for a works contract for spandrel panel replacement and associated works on four high-rise blocks

Approval of this procurement strategy is required to enable the continuation of a programme to replace insulated panels forming part of the external walls of buildings, either fixed to masonry or incorporated into window frames. The intent of such panels is to provide thermal insulation and aesthetics but in some cases, whilst units will have been compliant with Building Regulations at the time of installation, the fire safety of these panels cannot be guaranteed. In such cases the replacement with A1-rated units is the appropriate course of action.
