Bull Products, manufacturer of life-saving fire protection equipment, has supplied over 300 of its Cygnus wireless alarm systems to the world famous, Grade II listed, Old Admiralty Building.
This is part of a project that is seeing the building being transformed into the new home for the Department for Education, becoming office space for 1,120 employees.
The Old Admiralty building has housed some of the country’s most famous historical figures, and was most recently occupied by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
Contractor, Willmott Dixon, is transforming 23,000 square metres of the building into a new working environment, including the upgrade of building services to introduce new mechanical ventilation and environmental controls, offering long-term office space for government officials.
Mike Hart, chief operating officer at Willmott Dixon Interiors, commented: “We are proud to be tasked with such an important development.
“It will be delivered by an experienced team familiar with the security, logistical and technical challenges of working on high-profile London projects.”
Over 300 Cygnus units and several control panels have been installed onsite to protect the whole building during the construction phase.
Being a Grade II listed building, great care has been taken to guarantee the safety and security of the building during the refurbishment process.
Bradley Markham, director at Bull Products, commented: “This high-profile project required an alarm system that could work effectively across a vast construction site to provide maximum safety and protection to workers, during and out of working hours.
“Our wireless fire alarm system is the ideal solution as it can connect up to 480 individual units in 15 different zones.”
This year, the Cygnus alarm system has been protecting some of the most prestigious and exciting developments in the UK’s captial, including No.1 Palace Street, 22 Bishopsgate, The Wardian and Newfoundland Quay.
The system’s flexibility and long-distance connection makes this temporary alarm perfect for protecting large construction projects from their start date right through to completion.
