Fire Safety Works - Arches Housing

This programme consisted of Fire Safety Upgrade works within Arches sheltered housing stock across the South Yorkshire Region. Working from existing fire compartmentation surveys and fire door inspection audits, our Horbury Property Services Ltd developed a cohesive plan of works to upgrade the fire safety to ten housing schemes. Each scheme required different solutions in both resident properties and communal areas.

Horbury Property Services Ltd undertook the following works:


  • Fire door repairs and remedial works
  • Fire door and door-set installations
  • Fire stopping and sealing
  • Pre-works surveying activities


Horbury Property Services Ltd had to work close with the local housing officers to gain access to resident properties to complete the installation of new fire doors without causing issues or privacy breaches. Other predicted issues were working in confined spaces such as loft areas and basements which presented several health and safety challenges. However, these were very effectively overcome with advanced planning.

Local asbestos registers were utilised to ensure all trade staff were working safely and avoided any existing asbestos containing material areas. All staff were asbestos awareness trained. All firestopping penetrations were recorded on our bespoke fire compartmentation software for issue to the client for use in their future fire risk assessments.
