Beyond Housing – Fire Door Compliance Works
We have installed and provided fire door sets and fire door maintenance for Beyond Housing.
We have been working in partnership with one of the largest housing organisations in the North East region, Beyond Housing, on their compliance works contract.
Background to the Project
Beyond Housing are one of the largest housing organisations in the North East region. They provide 15,000 homes and a wide range of services to over 30,000 customers living in the area. In 2021, we were appointed, with the support of Fusion 21, onto a small fire door contract which involved us replacing all doors with ones that conform to relevant fire safety regulations. Due to the success of this project and our dedication to the job, we have recently been chosen to carry out a £3.6m contract involving the installation of fire door sets and providing fire door maintenance over the next four years.
What services is Novus providing?
We are responsible for carrying out surveys, installing external composite FD30 fire resisting door sets, third
party certification, and disposing of the existing doors properly.
We have replaced 2,500 kitchens and bathrooms, resulting in £5m of work for us per annum. Being a BM Trada and FIRAS approved contractor means we’re able to survey existing fire doors, prepare reports and make recommendations.
As a Firas-approved contractor, we have offered Beyond Housing a comprehensive range of certified passive fire protection services through our dedicated Assure team.
What makes this project stand out?
Working within a live environment with residents always presents a challenge, which is why we believe communication is key. We provide a dedicated Customer Liaison Officer that is always on hand to reassure and answer any questions residents may have.
