Client: Raymond Brown
Description of Work: Installation and upgrade of a Radio Fire Alarm system
This stunning Grade II listed property, owned by Hampshire County Council, is one of their main offices within the centre of Winchester. The five storey building has undergone a major refurbishment throughout, carried out by Raymond Brown Construction.
Wessex Fire & Security were instructed by Hampshire County Council (HCC) to carry out a full radio site survey of the building in preparation for the design and installation of a new radio based fire alarm system. Wessex Fire & Security subsequently secured the contracted for a complete fire alarm system replacement and worked closely with Raymond Brown during the building’s phased refurbishment.
The building was occupied during the course of the contract and Wessex Fire & Security engineers worked hard to ensure full fire alarm protection was maintained, without disruption to onsite staff and visitors whilst all building works were completed.
The works involved interlinking the new fire alarm with other existing electrical services and the removal of the old fire alarm upon completion.
