Smoke Ventilators – Reaching New Heights
BBC Fire Protection has recently carried out 2 major projects for Southern Housing involving the installation of new Fire detection systems and smoke ventilators and controls.
To install the roof level ventilators, BBC Fire Protection, in consultation with the Client and their appointed project Managers, Messrs Calford Seaden, developed a Fire Risk Assessment and method Statement so that the occupants of the building, the passing public and the installers could carry out the works with the minimum of risk.
The methodology involved the use of mobile cranes to lift the ventilators in position at high level. The works were carried out safely and with the minimum inconvenience to tenants and public alike.
