“I chose to live in the Tannery because I thought it was quite spacious and bright. I really liked the en suites too and all the facilities were clean and quite modern. We also have a really cool common room here! The best thing about living in halls is the friends you make and being able to spend time with them! We’re like a little family in my flat.”

Aluminium Composite Material (ACM) cladding has not been used in the construction of The Tannery.

The Tannery also has many features that enable the safe evacuation of individuals, including a fire detection and alarm system that exceeds legislative requirements. The automatic L (Life) type alarm system ensures that all areas of your residence are covered by detection, including bedrooms, kitchens, plant rooms, and communal areas.  Other fire safety systems installed for your protection include:

  • Fire containment between rooms, flats and areas within buildings. Walls, ceilings and door sets are designed to resist and prevent the spread of fire long enough for you to safely escape the building.
  • A dry riser system to be used by the fire brigade in a situation where they want to use their fire hoses on any level of your building.
  • Fire blankets in kitchens throughout the building(s).

In addition, we operate a system where local staff and fire wardens are trained to undertake proactive and reactive fire safety duties, which include building inspections and routine fire safety checks.
