Category 2 Fire Sprinkler Installation in Manchester
This project was for our client Heatcraft Plumbing and Heating Services Ltd who are a mechanical contractor based in Altrincham who were working on behalf on the main builder Placefirst.
The project was an existing building of out of use offices of a former job centre in Longsight Manchester that were to be redeveloped into 53 new high quality one, two and three bed apartments across the 32,000 sq ft site. The fire sprinklers were installed at the request of the client who wanted to achieve better fire safety enhancements for the new tenants of the building.
The enquiry for the project came through from Heatcraft who were an existing client. At the time we had several projects on with them at the same time. The works involved were for the installation of fire sprinklers to every apartment in the building as well as the landlords’ areas and communal rooms and the system was being fed from the boosted cold water supply which was installed by Heatcraft.
We started the project by completing the sprinkler designs in coordination with the electrical lighting layouts which were sent to and approved by our client Heatcraft. Installation began in April 2021, where we commenced on the first floor before then moving on to the remaining floors in the following weeks.
The work was carried out by subcontractors who took around 12 months to complete due to the programme requirements for each floor. This was a challenge as we had limited time to prepare and install each floor level due to tight programme dates and ongoing coordination with other services and contractors on site.
The installation was completed in April 2022 with a final installation count of 300 heads. We commissioned the system in the presence of Heatcraft who signed off our works. The system was under warranty for the next 12 months in which Base will provide ongoing support with any issues the client may have during that period.
Base PM Chris Murphy said, ‘Clarence Road was the first project I managed from start to completion. The project was commissioned with very little issues on site and the subcontract installation team did a great job of ensuring the project was completed before the required handover date.’
