Are there currently any sprinklers installed in any blocks owned or operated by NBC?
There are currently no sprinkler systems installed in NBC residential properties.
The installation of a sprinkler system is included in the scope of the regeneration works on St Katherines Court. These regeneration works commenced in November 2016 and are due for completion in spring 2018.
As landlords we are guided by Building Regulations and advice from government departments on what facilities are required to be fitted within our blocks.
Should the position on the installation of residential sprinklers in existing buildings be reviewed and changed by the Government Building Control bodies, we will act on that advice to ensure that we are in line with any guidance.
