The project comprises the installation of new Voice Alarm (VA) and alarm sounders via wired speakers within Sector D Galleries, which was installed spread across 14 No. speaker zones.
Alpine Works contracted a voice alarm specialist Tyco Fire & integrated Solutions to supply and commission the speakers, to integrate with the existing installation. Works included testing and commissioning of the voice alarm system prior to handover. As part of the initial testing and commissioning, we provided speaker line impedance and continuity testing, then Tyco made the final connections within the equipment rack of the new infrastructure.
Alpine Works also engaged the services of the Framework Contractor Coniston Limited for the additional provision of protection to walls and floors in non-working areas where we expected to install services infrastructure. All holes and services penetrations were fire stopped in accordance with the British Museum’s Fire Stopping Supplement. Temporary fire stopping was also provided by Alpine Works at the end of each working day to all holes and services penetrations made in the building fabric.
