|Chubb has to install a solution that includes fire alarm, disabled refuge, PA, intruder alarm and toilet alarms|
Chubb has won a contract with the Bulwell Academy, Nottingham, to supply an integrated fire and security alarm system. Chubb Fire is part of UTC Fire & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corporation.
M&E contractor on the project is Balfour Beatty and it specified Chubb to install a solution that includes fire alarm, disabled refuge, PA, intruder alarm and toilet alarms.
The Bulwell Academy opened in September 2009 to replace the two secondary schools in the local community. The academy, sited in new state-of-the-art facilities, caters for students from the age of 11 and has its own sixth form.
"Fire safety in schools is obviously one of the primary concerns," adds Jane Garland, Marketing and Communications Manager at Chubb. "Chubb Fire and Security is pleased to be able to use its expertise to keep all students, staff and facilities safe from the threat of fire and indeed theft and vandalism."
Balfour Beatty has capabilities in construction, civil engineering contracting and consulting, mechanical and electrical engineering, electronics, systems and control engineering, chemical/materials engineering as well as project management and long term investment services.
