Yee GroupYee Group’s Passive Fire Protection (PFP) division was awarded the contract for fire door refurbishment at a purpose-built housing scheme for the over 55s in Hull.

Working closely with the independent living Scheme Manager, Yee Group repaired, replaced and upgraded 20 doorsets in corridors and communal areas throughout the building.

With the dual objectives of timely project delivery and minimal disruption to residents; the Yee Group project manager double-checked the specification of every door and scheduled the works sensitively to suit the residents of the flats, prior to the operational team arriving on site.

The FIRAS certified installers at Yee Group brought expertise and skills to the scheme, together with years of experience dealing with residents in multi-occupancy and social care buildings. The team went to great lengths to work neatly and match new fire doors with existing interiors. While fire doors have to play a critical role in fire safety and need to meet standards, Yee Group also wanted them to be attractive and have a high-quality, durable finish.

Yee Group Managing Director Simon Chapman stated:

“Clients and service-users often comment on the respectful and professional nature of our approach to the people we encounter while on site in residential settings. The client’s objective for residents in this property is that they live ‘comfortably, securely, and independently’ and we remembered that aspiration every day that we were on site.”
