It’s been a busy but enjoyable 2014 so far for TFS, and we’re pleased to announce another major contract with Your Housing Group – a group of housing associations and companies providing over 32,000 affordable, quality homes across the North West, Yorkshire and Midlands.
They provide a wide range of homes for social rent, along with properties to purchase through their Outlook Team and Extra Care housing for the over 55s.
Their mission is to ‘transform your lives and your communities’, and for those who require that little bit of extra support, Your Housing Group provide sheltered and supported accommodation for older people and young adults.
In April 2012, Harvest Housing Group (18,000 properties) and Arena Housing Group (14,000 properties) merged to form Your, and now have a projected turnover of approximately £150 million per year. Both companies have brought their unique qualities and strengths together to preserve and improve their community services and an increasing number of affordable homes moving forward.
The team here at Total Fire Services have completed a successful pilot for 18 of YHG’s highest risk premises. These included 6 tower blocks, care homes, sheltered accommodation and commercial properties. We have now been instructed to complete the remainder of YHG’s annual fire risk assessments over a very tight deadline that will involve assessments of over 100 buildings in just 3 months.
We’re looking forward to continuing work with the team and properties at YHG, Don’t forget, our comprehensive BAFE approved fire risk assessments will ensure that you and your premises complies with fire safety regulations, so don’t hesitate to get in touch and we can discuss your needs.
