New apartment building named after one of England great footballers
An old Baptist Church in Farnworth was converted into luxury apartments with a state of the art smoke ventilation system.
Marshall Electrical Services completed the Smoke Ventilation System which is part of the overall fire strategy to ensure the safety of its occupants.
The building had fallen into a state of disrepair after being boarded up for a number of years and had been targeted by vandals, and while a certain amount of renovation work had already started internally by others it had ground to a halt.
Mr Lister, of PDL Restoration Ltd, contacted Alan’s immediate family with the idea of the name of the building and was pleased to hear that they were overwhelmingly in favour of it being named after him.
Work started in April last year and the building including a stained glass dome window was beautifully restored.
A longstanding interest in football and links to Farnworth, gave Mr Lister had the idea of recognising ‘one of Farnworth’s many sporting legends’.
The 5ft 6in midfielder Mr Ball had trials with Bolton Wanderers as a teenager but was rejected when coaches told him he was too small. But his career eventually began with Blackpool and he was transferred to Everton for a then British record fee of £110,000.
He won a league championship title with the Merseyside club in 1970 and collected 72 England caps during a ten year international career, later managing clubs including Southampton and Manchester City.
A smoke ventilation system will save lives
Marshall Electrical Services completed the smoke ventilation system which is a life saving system. It works on operation of a fire and clears the smoke from a fire to allow any occupants to escape.
Once people are safely away from the building, the system will shut down and starve the fire of oxygen.
