Core 364

14 November 2019

A project to install sprinklers in high-rise buildings has begun, involving what is thought to be the largest gas replacement in high-rise tower blocks in the UK.

The project, Core 364, is taking place in Sunderland as part of a £9 million investment into tower blocks.

Fire safety in the buildings will be maximised, with upgraded fire alarm and smoke detection systems, as well as the installation of state-of-the-art sprinkler systems.

Residents in the blocks will also benefit from significant energy bill savings as a result of uniquely heating both their home and water with renewable heat from the Earth’s core.
