Fire alarms for a major, mixed-use accommodation complex

Themes: Largescale project, accommodation in occupation, phased installation

Duration: 6 months – 15 year relationship

Scope: Largescale, mixed-use complex with offices, student accommodation and an underground carpark

Key services: Upgraded lighting, emergency lighting, fire alarm systems

The project: West One is one of the biggest, mix-use accommodation and office complexes in Sheffield. This was a fire alarm project on a significant scale, with in excess of 1,300 fire alarm devices to replace. This involved specialist knowledge of the 12-loop fire alarm panels, for which few electricians have the expertise to handle. The complex is fully operational with people living and working across more than 2,000 apartments and several floors of retail and office space. We phased the job zone-by-zone over a period of six months, to ensure that fire alarm systems were kept in working order throughout.

Successes: Our successful delivery of the project has seen S&L Electrical commissioned to work on further major accommodation projects for the business including Gate Crasher, Neepsend Triangle, Broomgrove Apartments and a new-build farmhouse in Wigan.

“Their tradesmen were efficient, courteous and respectful of the sacred space in which they were working. The quality of S&L’s project management was second to none. The project manager met with us regularly to ensure we were happy with the way the work was proceeding and to discuss any forthcoming events, such as funerals or special services, around which we required them to work. S&L staff were flexible and fully co-operative in this respect.”
