Focus was engaged to undertake a full fire service upgrade to the three St Martins towers to provide a compliant fire detection and wet fire protection system throughout.
The scope of works included:
- construction of a new combined fire pump and tank system within the basement of Building 40 (using a previous bank vault for the tanks)
- installation of complete wet fire and detection systems throughout the buildings
- ceiling modification and reinstatement works to enable access for the installation
- construction of a new booster pump set arrangement
The challenges included working through the night within operating office tenancies, and restoring a clean and operational workspace before the start of business each day.
