The Challenge/Brief:

Anchor was established in 1968 by Cecil Jackson-Cole, as Help the Aged (Oxford) Housing Association, to provide sheltered housing to older people. By 1972, the organisation had completed its first new-build properties and begun diversifying into both leasehold and rented accommodation.

The organisation became Anchor Housing Association in 1975, and launched its first care homes in 1982.  They are now the largest not for profit provider of housing and care for people over 55 years old in the UK.

When it came to upgrading systems on some of their more established homes the obvious answer was to come to us! We have been installing and upgrading care home systems for over 20 years and are specialists in this field working for Housing and Care 21, Extracare and on the larger retirement villages for Audley Retirement amongst others.

Welland Mews opened in 1988 and 20 years on the Warden Call, Door Entry and Access Control systems were ready for an upgrade.  Using one of our trusted suppliers and manufacturers of this equipment, Tynetec, TIS Engineers installed and commissioned the new systems with minimal disruption to residents and staff.  Welland Mews is now equipped with modern systems that ensure residents are able to remain independent in their homes.
