The Protect24 consortium has been awarded a £1.5 million contract retrofitting fire sprinklers to homes in Liverpool.
Springhead, part of the Protect24 consortium, will retrospectively fit fire safety measures to four high rise blocks in Woolton.
Work will begin initially on 86 homes in Dealcroft and 80 in Dovercroft before moving onto Lymecroft and Rydecroft.
Protect24 will install fire sprinklers to individual homes, dry risers and other fire safety measures.
The work will be carried out on behalf of the Guinness Housing Trust as part of their ongoing building program.
Work to the communal areas at the four blocks has already begun after a successful Meet The Contractor Day was held in July.
Contractors will begin working on residents apartment on September 10th and work is expected to be completed within eight weeks.
Protect24 Managing Director Mark Lyons, said: “We are delighted to be working with Guinness Housing Trust on this project in Liverpool.
