Decision Maker: Officer Decision

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Council wishes to add heat sensors to the smoke detectors already in place in the communal kitchens of its sheltered housing.


Two decisions have been made:


1)    Given national concerned regarding fire safety it is considered appropriate to waive contract standing orders on grounds of urgency in order to provide further reassurance and protection to tenants.


2)    To appoint English Security at agreed rates to install the heat sensors in sheltered schemes. English Security are a contractor that has a good knowledge of IBC sheltered schemes having delivered various contract works over a number of years and have specialist knowledge of the fire systems installed. This would ensure that the work is completed in the quickest possible time.
