Chubb Fire & Security has become the principal fire and security provider for Dunedin Canmore, a leading provider of social housing and related services in Scotland.

After initially installing fire alarms for many years, Chubb now provides installation and maintenance of emergency lighting, intruder alarms, CCTV and access control.

Chubb has worked for more than a decade with Dunedin Canmore, part of Wheatley Group. Across its communities, Chubb has built a strong working relationship and is now servicing more than 150 sites for the housing association.

With a strong focus on compliance, Chubb’s services range from initial fire risk assessments and security audits to the remote monitoring of all the sites in its care. Additionally, Chubb is now servicing their Chubb Care System (warden call), an enhanced assisted living solution, across the majority of Dunedin Canmore’s amenity housing for older people.

Stuart Phillips, compliance officer at Dunedin Canmore, said: “We’ve enjoyed a great working relationship with Chubb for over a decade. Their customer service is excellent and we’re delighted to have made them our principal fire and security provider.”

Dunedin Canmore owns and manages around 5,500 homes across Edinburgh, the Lothians and Fife. Chubb also provides fire and security services for YourPlace, Barony Housing Association and Lowther Homes, all of whom are part of Wheatley Group, Dunedin Canmore’s parent company.

Chubb is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp.
