Colchester House Fire Prevention & Upgrade Works Nearing Completion

20 June 2019

Earlier this year we started some major works at our recently acquired block of flats at Colchester House to deal with bringing the property up to the latest standards for fire prevention – a significant investment working with Horbury Property Services has seen a new alarm system, fire stopping and new fire door replacements to all flat entrances and communal doors throughout the scheme, along with decorating the communal areas with fire retardant materials to ensure the safety of our residents in their homes.

Whilst we still await the legislative promised changes to building regulations and maintenance practices to ensure safety in blocks of flats following the tragic events at Grenfell 2 years ago Arches Housing has worked proactively with our fire risk assessors and will continue to do so through our programs of servicing and maintenance for fire safety.
