Chubb has worked with Northwards Housing Association for more than five years, providing assistive living solution systems and monitoring services through its Chubb Community Care business. Chubb Fire & Security won the new fire alarm contract following a detailed tender process, involving several client meetings and site visits.

Alan White, principal engineer for home improvements, Northwards Housing, said Chubb is a name the housing provider trusts.

"Our excellent relationship with Chubb Community Care, together with Chubb Fire & Security's professional, industry-respected reputation made the company an obvious choice for our fire safety requirements," he said. "Chubb impressed us with its understanding of the latest British Standards and ability to provide designs compliant with the latest regulations. Since the fire alarm system needed to integrate with the existing assistive living solution system, the contract has benefitted from both companies coming under the Chubb umbrella."

"Northwards Housing Association has a responsibility to provide good and safe homes," he added. "We aim to go above and beyond the Government's Decent Homes Standards, and both Chubb businesses have supported us in this goal."

Northwards Housing Association is an arm's length management organisation responsible for all aspects of maintenance and management in over 13,500 of Manchester City Council's North Manchester properties.
