Camden Construction Consultancy Contract

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.

Armstrong York secures Willmott Dixon

Site: Dorsett City London Hotel site in Aldgate

Armstrong York are pleased to announce our strengthened presence in the hotel sector by being appointed on a prestigious contract award with construction and regeneration specialist Willmott Dixon for the supply of noise and dust environmental monitoring at the Dorsett City London Hotel site in Aldgate, London.

This will be Dorsett’s second hotel in London and sees the team build the 13 storey complex which will be located on Aldgate High Street next to Aldgate tube station and the 18th century St Botolph Church. When complete in December 2016, it will provide 270 bedrooms along with restaurant, fitness centre and 1,600 sq ft of meeting areas for the business community.

Willmott Dixon like many of Armstrong Yorks environmental monitoring clients require real time data availability. This enables our client to monitor dust, noise and vibration readings as and when they wish. The data is stored securely on site and can be searched and viewed live 24-7 via a secure and private login to AirQ our environmental monitoring software. The data can be displayed in a variety of graph formats, as well as on a map by instrument location, with reports being prepared and data exported in a range of convenient formats. All our monitoring systems can be set to send alerts by text, email or audible siren.

Armstrong York look forward to working in partnership with Willmott Dixon over the next 12 months.
