“Shortlisted for Midlands Residential Property Awards 2020.”

Project
A new complex of two blocks providing 324 residential apartments, commercial and office space and car parking. The tower has a top floor height in excess of 60 m.

Challenges
Extended travel distances in the corridor and inner rooms.

Solutions
We devised an innovative fire engineering strategy to ensure fire safety whilst also adding value to the project. We developed a bespoke mechanical ventilation system to maintain tenable conditions in the corridor for any fire location and protection to the stair in both escape and firefighting phases.

Automatic suppression was required for the substation due to its basement location.
