Helping to modernise residential care services and address the shortage of suitable accommodation for homeless families, Fitzpatrick has worked closely with Brent Council and Bouygues UK to supply 41 metal doorsets to three social housing projects throughout the London Borough of Brent.

Due to the nature of the project, Bouygues UK was keen to ensure the products used would keep the area as secure as possible. As a result, Fitzpatrick provided its ‘Level Two’ Securicel doorsets.

Offering resistance to attacks by burglars - who are not afraid to make noise by using heavier hand tools, including pipe wrenches, claw hammers or hand drills, the ‘Level Two’ Securicel doorsets were fitted to apartment entrances in the Winchelsea, Brook Avenue and Fawood Avenue social housing developments. Supplied in Ochre Brown and Slate Grey colours to complement the surroundings, the Securicel range was perfect for this high capacity social housing project. 

 From an added safety perspective, the Securicel doorsets also offer an FD30 fire rating, making them effective against fire outbreaks for up to 30 minutes.

To ensure the most suitable solution was delivered, Fitzpatrick maintained a close relationship with Bouygues UK, who formed part of the Brent Coefficient (BCE) that delivered the project for Brent Council.

Jody Bishop, Bouygues UK Project Manager for the Winchelsea and Brook Avenue projects, said:  
“We required doorsets that would offer an added level of security and would help keep residents safe 24/7. For this reason, the Securicel range was ideal and gave both Bouygues UK and Brent Council the added peace of mind that the doors would provide the level of protection required.”
Similarly, Nicolas Villepinte, Bouygues UK Project Manager for the Fawood Avenue project, commented: 
“Fitzpatrick provided good technical support during the design development stage and their commercial approach towards challenges on site was greatly appreciated. The installation was also very well organised, giving us the confidence that the projects would be completed to a high standard.”

Following completion, the Fawood and Winchelsea developments were awarded Ecosite status by Bouygues UK in recognition of the achievements made to minimise and manage the environmental impact of the sites, coupled with the implementation of best practice procedures. Fitzpatrick was instrumental in achieving this due to its commitment to introduce a more streamlined working practice to the projects and has achieved ISO 94001 compliance, with relevant environmental legislation, as a minimum level of achievement.

Offering total design, manufacture and installation services throughout the UK, Fitzpatrick supply a range of performance metal doorsets that are suitable for use in a variety of settings. All doorsets can be manufactured to specific opening sizes, allowing differences in size, configuration and construction to be accommodated. All Fitzpatrick doorsets can be manufactured in stainless or mild steel and finished in primer or powder coated to any RAL or BS colour.
