Armstrong York is delighted to announce our place on the Camden Construction Consultancy Framework for Lot 7 (Asbestos Surveys, Testing and Reporting).
The London Borough of Camden was created in 1963 with the aim of providing more efficient local government for the communities previously served by the old Metropolitan Boroughs of Hampstead, Holborn and St Pancras. The Council employs approximately 4800 people (excluding schools) across the Borough and serves a population of over 200,000 people. Their annual third party spend is approximately £400m. The appointment includes delivering services across Children, Schools and Families, Environment and Culture and Housing and Social Care for the provision of Asbestos surveys, testing and systems advice at all locations throughout London. The main services required are surveys of sites for asbestos and testing of material, provision of reports, method statements for removal works and advice on the effectiveness of systems and approaches.
The construction specialisms sought for this Framework will be used mainly by the Council’s Repairs and Improvements Division in Housing and Adult Social Care (HASC). The Authority owns and manages approximately 33,000 housing units in a mix of tenant and leasehold tenure. The planned maintenance programme expenditure is likely to exceed £500M for the remainder of the decade. The suppliers appointed to this Framework will assist the Borough with design, costing, management and control of these works. The Framework is intended to encompass all aspects of construction consultancy. Other departments of the council will also, from time to time, utilise the professionals appointed to this Framework.
Armstrong York will work to HSG 248 Guidance on Sampling analysis & HSG 264 the Survey Guide and Camden’s internal procedures for dealing with, and recording information on, asbestos as well as Camden’s Asbestos Compliance Brief.
