Protecting Lark Hill retirement village

Astral Fire and Security has played a key role in ensuring the safety of residents at the prestigious Lark Hill Retirement Village, in Nottingham.

Lark Hill is owned and operated by Extra Care and is amongst the largest retirement villages of its type in Europe. The site has 327 individual homes and many impressive additional buildings housing fitness suites, shops, cafes, IT rooms and a well being centre.

Rob Harris, MD of Astral commented: “Working in partnership with Cirrus Communications we were delighted to design and install a range of fire and security systems, including new fire alarms, CCTV and access control. We also installed a new nurse call system, telephone and data. Lark Hill is ExtraCare’s largest village, with fabulous facilities and unrivalled views over open countryside in Clifton, overlooking the Soar Valley. Now thanks to Astral’s involvement, residents can relax in the knowledge that vital life safety systems are in place.”

All systems have preventative maintenance contracts in place, with life safety systems receiving a four hour call out.

Astral is currently working with Cirrus Communications on similar projects in Erdington, Gloucester and Stratford.
