Client: Portsmouth City Council
Location: Flying Bull School, Central Portsmouth
Description of Work: Refurbishment of the School
Flying Bull School is a large primary and nursery school situated in the heart of Portsmouth. This year long project involves replacing the existing fire alarm and intruder systems, as well as upgrading the closed circuit television system.
Wessex Fire & Security worked closely with Portsmouth City Council and the Flying Bull School to help replace the old fire alarm, intruder and CCTV systems.
The school was operational throughout the refurbishment, therefore a phased approach to works throughout the school term was executed to minimise disruption.
Deamonn Hewett-Dale, Headmaster at Flying Bull School said “We have been working with Wessex since Autumn 2012. At the outset, a representative of the company took time to explain to me in very simple terms what was needed and what was going to be done. I appreciated the time this took as I am not technically minded at all!
The work completed in Phase 1 has been excellent. It is a complicated job as the build is in 5 phases lasting over 12 – 15 months. It involves maintaining our old system from another supplier and introducing the new system and for the two to run together. Wessex have overseen all of this and they have kept my staff informed at all times. Very impressed so far.”
