At Checkmate, protecting lives, buildings and communities is at the heart of everything we do. With social housing as one of our key sectors, we are delighted to announce that we have been appointed as passive fire contractor on 4 of the Hyde Fire Safety Framework Lots.
Checkmate’s framework lead and Senior Business Development Manager, Caroline Walters, said, “We are so proud to deliver such vital works across the Hyde Group Fire Safety Framework. Significant long-term contracts not only benefit us, but also our supply-chain partners and employees. We are incredibly excited to add the Hyde framework to our long-term portfolio, ensuring we can invest in our people, and deliver a safer Britain.”
With residents and communities desperate to feel safe, passive fire protection for social housing is fundamental to saving lives, protecting homes, and restoring compliance to our built environment.
Having extensive experience providing bespoke passive fire protection solutions to the housing sector, Checkmate’s clients benefit from the fact that we have been doing it right for over 30 years. With circa 80% of our works delivered within occupied buildings, our expertise ensures the provision of a more sustainable future for social housing, keeping homes safe and sound, and extending their lifespan.
Expressing his passion and enthusiasm for the works ahead, our Chief Development Officer, Gavin Slattery, stated, “We are enormously excited about how our relationship with Hyde will develop over the coming years, and how we can continue to contribute to the fire safety of the social housing community. As with any contract of this nature there will be challenges ahead, but we look forward to every one of them. This was a huge team effort, and our thanks goes out to everyone involved!”
