Nottingham City Council enlisted PWP Fire & Security to design, supply and commission a £125,000 upgrade to the existing fire alarm system in the Council House, Exchange Buildings and Shopping Complex in the Old Market Square, Nottingham.
The installation incorporated Gent 6 loop ‘Vigilon’ control panels, additional fire alarm equipment and a networked wireless fire alarm. More than 400 Honeywell and EMS devices were installed, both wireless and hard wired.
The Shopping complex installation has additional features suited to a retail environment, including verification features to reduce false alarms, whilst maintaining full communication with all parts of the system.
Being a site of historical importance and a listed building, PWP worked closely with Heritage personnel to ensure that cabling, positioning of equipment and other aspects of the project did not unduly impact on the architecture and appearance of the buildings.
