Two units in an existing shopping centre joined together to make one larger unit with a connection between the ground and first floor.
The client did not want to provide a smoke curtain between the Metro Bank and the Mall at ground floor level.
Innovation Fire Engineering designed a fire safety package including, enhanced detection and sprinklers instead of a smoke curtain to meet the brief for the Metro Bank. The fire load and fire hazard level were reduced because the new unit is a bank rather than a retail unit. We delivered cost savings and design flexibility to our repeat client.

“Innovation Fire presented us with a different design option. We were happy with the brilliant service we received, an overall simple, whole design package. Mace would definitely use (Innovation Fire) again”.
