Thorngate Churcher Trust

18th May 2018

Thorngate Churcher Trust

Detect have recently completed a new addressable fire alarm system at a brand new building in the heart of Gosport, Hampshire.

Lucas Court is the latest development by Thorngate Churcher Trust, a charity based in Gosport that specialist in assisted living.

Joseph Goddard and Detect have shared a fantastic working relationship with the team at Thorngate since 2009 and currently service all of their property portfolio.

The new development is low rise and is designed to have an ultra-low environmental impact. It boasts ten new homes and a new communal lounge, complete with kitchen.

Each flat is completely self-contained with its own laundry facilities and kitchen and each has its own front door within a sunny, light and airy communal atrium. The residents of Lucas benefit from on-site 24/7 warden assistance.

Detect were trusted to design a fire alarm system that met with the satisfaction of the fire risk assessment and is sympathetic to the architecture of this fantastic building.

Lucas Court is the latest addition to their growing property portfolio and we wish them every success moving forward.
