Chubb Expands Fire Safety Contract With Major Services Provider
Chubb has expanded its business relationship with Dunedin Canmore, a leading provider of housing and related services in Edinburgh, the Lothians and Fife, to become the sole external provider of emergency lighting maintenance. The contract builds on Chubb and Dunedin Canmore's existing agreement, which includes fire system installation, fire risk assessments, and the maintenance of fire alarms, intruder alarms, smoke vents, dry risers and fire extinguishers.
Swansea University have chosen Chubb for fire protection in their new Bay Campus.
As part of the maintenance agreement, Chubb undertakes a monthly test of the emergency lights at 120 of Dunedin Canmore's Edinburgh-based properties, which include domestic multi-storey buildings, sheltered accommodations and hostels. Chubb will also provide a thorough three-hour annual maintenance service, to ensure each system is fully operable and any faults are identified and rectified.
Stuart Phillips, building surveyor at Dunedin Canmore, said, "It makes good financial and practical sense to consolidate our fire maintenance contracts with one provider. We also have good relations with Chubb's engineers," he continued. "Should there be a problem, I am confident that it can be quickly resolved."
As part of the new contract, Chubb will also provide maintenance services to each of the new properties that Dunedin Canmore plans to build over the next three years. Dunedin Canmore manages more than 5,500 properties, and also delivers regeneration projects to improve the local communities within which it works.
