As residents are responsible for their own gas and electricity bills, they each have their own stoves and gas meters in the communal kitchen. Electricity meters and light switches are installed in their own rooms. Four aligned light fittings are provided in every shared space, connected respectively to each resident’s room. The communal bathroom only provides basic utilities. With EAS also installed in the unit, the warden can be notified when residents require help.11 FIGURE 1.12 Individual lights and switchboard
