Update on improvements to fire alarm system

Published: 27 Oct 2022

Following several false soundings of the fire alarm in summer 2022, we have been working closely with our contractor, Protec, to review and update the system to deliver a programme of works to prevent future false alarms while maintaining strict health and safety standards on site. We have made several tweaks to the system to date which have already reduced the instances of alarms sounding.

Between 31 October and 04 November, the following additional updates will be made to the system with a view to minimising disturbance to our near neighbours:

  • All external sirens will be muted between the hours of 6:00 PM and 8:00 AM. Only internal alarms will sound during these hours.
  • The system will be updated so that use of a fire hose will not automatically trigger the internal alarms.
