Northampton Partnership Homes … U Turn on sprinklers?

However, we wish to go further and want to offer extra reassurance to our residents that their safety is our top priority. We’re pleased to confirm that although we are not required by law to install them, we have already contracted to install a sprinkler system in the fire exits and communal areas of St Katherines Court, our only high rise block. We expect the refurbishment works at St Katherines Court to be complete by Autumn.

Northampton Partnership Homes seems to be RISKING its reputation and the safety of its tenants for between £60,000-£100,000
In the stock it manages for Northampton Borough Council only one block (St Katherines Court) would be categorised as high-rise.
Sprinkler retrofit costs…
An analysis of retrofitting work in high rise tower blocks completed in the past 5 years confirms that costs per flat average out between £1,500 and £2,500 per flat.
Katherines Court has 40 flats the cost would be between £60,000-£100,000 to retrofit sprinklers
