Growing safely with Kidde

Bond Housing Group’s recently completed HMO development in Lincoln features Kidde’s Slick smoke and heat alarms plus CO alarms.

Kidde customer, Bond Housing Group, is rapidly expanding its rented homes operation in Lincoln and is one of the founding landlords of the Lincoln Trusted Landlord Scheme. The Group specifies only Kidde products for its ‘Grade D’ fire alarm and CO alarm systems.

Already a multi award-winning supplier of high quality HMO accommodation for over 20 years in North London, Place Group opened its Lincoln office in April 2014. Here it expanded quickly through the establishment of a fully operational letting management and development business – Bond Housing Group Lincoln – with the company already managing assets worth over £9m.

The company invests in refurbishing period houses in the city centre, offering a range of safe, secure studio-style en-suite bedrooms plus communal kitchens and laundry rooms. Tenant safety is paramount and the company always specifies Kidde’s Firex and Slick ranges of hard-wired, interconnected smoke and heat alarms for BS 5839-6 ‘Grade D’ systems, as well as Kidde carbon monoxide alarms.

Bond Housing Group CEO Rob Hunter commented: “We choose Kidde because there is no second chance to get it right with refurbishment. We want to avoid any costly mistakes that could occur if we specified a less established brand and had to make changes later. Moreover, we know that Kidde will support us in future.

Bond Housing Group’s most recently completed HMO development in Lincoln – at West Parade – features Kidde’s Slick smoke and heat alarms, as well as the company’s CO alarms. This will be one of the first properties to be inspected and accredited under the city’s new ‘Lincoln Trusted Landlord Scheme’, designed to improve standards of accommodation, management of tenants and neighbourhood relations.

Rob Hunter added: “Bond Housing Group is now one of the leading Lincoln landlords and property developers, with five projects in hand at present. We plan to become a PLC by the end of the year”.
