This amalgamated framework also compliments our Fire Safety (FS1) framework, as part of our portfolio offering to property protection and maintenance.

About the Framework

Throughout our extensive pre-tender engagement (PTE) process our clients in the public sector acknowledged the positive contribution our existing frameworks in property protection (V7), asbestos services (AS2) and water management (WM1) have made in delivering effective life safety systems in the management and maintenance of their assets and resulting benefits to their tenants and building users.

Our response has been to combine these services and enhance the framework offering further with two additional workstreams covering gas safety, heating, electrical inspection, testing and servicing in both commercial and residential settings.

The result is a framework designed to offer a comprehensive and wide-ranging suite of services to the public sector to assist in meeting building life safety and maintenance government guidelines and legal responsibilities with the flexibility to meet their needs and community priorities more effectively.

Our Vision for Asset Safety and Compliance

A guiding principle in the development of Asset Safety and Compliance (ASC1) has been to support the public sector in meeting their obligations under government guidelines and legal responsibilities in the area building life safety, maintenance, and compliance as efficiently as possible.

As with all our frameworks we achieve this by striving to meet and exceed the “Gold Standard” for public sector construction frameworks. We pride ourselves on our long-standing commitment to early engagement and collaboration bringing specialist suppliers and public sector bodies together to guide framework development ensuring best possible outcomes for the public sector and their communities.

Asset Safety and Compliance (ASC1) clearly demonstrates the benefits of early collaboration resulting in a comprehensive framework making high quality specialist firms available to the public sector working together to improve asset and building safety for building occupants and communities.

SWPA continues to fulfil our commitments to social value impacts increasing the public sector’s access to regional and local specialists, encouraging SME involvement, and driving economic uplift to regional areas.
