Building and Fire Safety

The safety of our customers is our number one priority, here you can read about building and fire safety. We have robust procedures in place regarding fire safety which are reviewed and tested on a regular basis.

Keeping you safe in your home


We take fire safety in our tower blocks seriously. To reduce the fire risk in your home, the walls, doors and floors are designed to stop fire and smoke from spreading. We also engage fire consultants to complete yearly Fire Risk Assessments.

We aim to help you stay safe in your home with the information below. However, if you have been advised of a temporary evacuation strategy whilst there are ongoing works, please follow the advice as it maybe a temporary requirement to evacuate the building in the event of a fire regardless of where that fire is. If you do have a temporary evacuation strategy in place, this will be displayed in the foyer also and all residents will be advised.


Although the walls, doors and floors are all designed to stop fire and smoke from spreading, we need your help to ensure that you stay as safe as possible.
