Occupation levels at Fairview House are kept at a high level primarily due to the requirements of local employers requiring additional staff and project workers for specific periods.
The decomisioning of Dounreay has brought hundreds of new workers to the area, primarily they are contract specialists working in the are for periods of between 6 and 12 months. There is also a great deal of activity in the Renewables Energy Sector which is attracting a great deal of investment.
The rotation of these workers has resulted in a smooth switch over of tenants within Fairview, minimising the time the flats lay empty.
