City West Housing Trust

The Brief

Residents living in 58 properties within Engels House are now protected by fire sprinklers.

Protect24 have retrospectively fitted a fire sprinkler system to the 10-storey building at Barton Village.

The works, part of a £6-million package to retrofit fire protection measures to 17 properties owned by City West Housing, includes a bespoke fire safety strategy for Engels.

This includes fire sprinklers to each individual home and the communal areas.

Engels was originally built in the 1960s but underwent a stunning modernisation program in 2011.

The works, commissioned by City West Housing, was part of a stunning £14.3 million regeneration at Barton Village.

Now, the properties are all protected against the risk of fire by the Protect24 installation, part of a £6-million package commissioned by City West Housing Trust, part of the ForViva Group.

The Result

Work was completed on time with sprinklers fitted to individual homes and the communal areas with 100% resident satisfaction.
