Installing emergency lighting in Grade 2 property

Recommended Posts


Our organisation is leasing a grade 2 listed building as supported accommodation for 5 residents. There is a fire detection system installed but no emergency lighting. As there are 5 bedrooms this qualifies as an ***, which usually means emergency lighting is required. Is it any different for a listed building?

Thanks in anticipation,

No, the listed status of a building does not allow occupiers to be put at increased risk. If it's had electricity and light fittings added already then it will usually be possible to put emergency lighting in with ease, especially if you use conversion kits in existing fittings.

Also check the listing at English Heritage - often it's the exterior of the building that is listed, not always the interior (& not always all aspects either)
