Fire safety update - tower blocks
28/07/2017
​Since the tragic events at Grenfell Tower last month, we have had a project team focussed on our tower blocks making sure that residents are safe and feel reassured.
 
Our three tower blocks (Milton Court; Hillview; Greenwood) were all refurbished in 2014 and have a number of fire safety measures in place. These include:
 
• Smoke/fire alarms in each property and in communal areas
• Fire-retardant paint in communal areas
• Fire doors for communal areas and the front doors of individual flats
• All flats and communal areas have been rewired
• Cladding insulation that is fire retardant and non-combustible
• Fire breaks installed between floors and vertically throughout the building
• Emergency lighting on evacuation routes
• Two stairwells that act as escape routes
 
The safety of our residents is an absolute priority, so in addition to the fire safety measures listed, our board have approved the installation of sprinklers in each of the tower blocks.
 
We are now working with contractors to get this work planned properly and make sure that we get value for money.
 
You may also have heard that more tests are being completed on whole cladding systems. These tests are being carried out by BRE on behalf of the government.
