Fusion21 Building Safety and Compliance Framework covers all key safety areas and is worth £880m over four years
NHS organisations are being given a helping hand to ensure compliance with building safety legislation following the launch of a new procurement framework from Fusion21.
The purchasing organisation has announced the suppliers successfully appointed to its national Building Safety & Compliance Framework – worth up to £880m over a four-year period.
A total of 175 prequalified, accredited suppliers – both SMEs and multinational organisations – have been assessed for their skills, knowledge, experience, and behaviours and have secured a place on the framework, which has been designed and positioned to meet emerging requirements, particularly in relation to fire safety and the building safety agenda.
The framework is open to all public-sector organisations and covers surveys, planned and responsive maintenance, and installation and upgrades, and complements Fusion21’s existing Heating and Renewables and Lifts frameworks to cover the big six compliance areas.
The latest framework covers a total of 14 lots, including three completely-new areas.

Peter Francis, director of operations at Fusion21, said: “This framework has been developed to help our members meet the emerging fire safety requirements of the building safety agenda, offering fire safety, surveying, engineering, consultancy, and inspections.
“As with all of Fusion21’s frameworks, the Building Safety & Compliance Framework enables our members to deliver social value to their communities, and has been set up in a way that gives organisations the flexibility to align their use of the framework to their organisational priorities.”
