A project requires secure door entry and door entry replacement and common area upgrades including security installation and refurbishment works within social housing. Carrying a £540,000 budget, the works will run over four years. Another, worth £200,000, sees the replacement of fire and security alarms at ten schools in the district.
SPIE reports a long established working relationship with the Alloa-based council, developed through contracts spanning over 20 years including maintenance of door entry system and security systems. Previously, the company was tasked with three years of door entry system installations and renewals. SPIE reports it was praised for its ability to adapt to local requests while bringing the works in on time and within budget; tenants requested SPIE start their work later in the day so they were not disturbed in the morning. Since then SPIE has continued to work with the council and is the contractor for multiple properties and security systems throughout the authority region.
Paul Stevenson, Business Development Manager from SPIE UK, says: “With long-term works like this, it is vital to have a mindful relationship not just with the Council team, but with the local community. We hope to take on our responsibilities with minimal disruption and look forward again to working alongside Clackmannanshire Council for the duration of the contract.”
And Owen Munro, Team Leader Planned Works and Compliance, Clackmannanshire Council adds: “We have a programme to upgrade our Housing Stock and Common Areas throughout Clackmannanshire and feel well supported in this venture by SPIE. Having worked with the team in the past, we know their flexible and professional approach aligns perfectly with our own vision and requirements. We are confident they will deliver as high a standard of work on these projects as we have come to expect of them to the benefit for our customers.”
