Hazlewood School

Project: New Fire Detection & Alarm System Installation and CCTV Camera Extension

Client: Enfield Council

Value: £110K

A contract awarded in 2019 by Enfield Council to replace the existing conventional fire alarm system and the extension of the existing CCTV system to provide coverage to vulnerable areas of Hazlewood Infant & Junior School, Hazlewood Lane, London. N13 5HE.

We were responsible for development of the design, the supply, the installation, testing and commissioning of a complete analogue addressable ‘wireless’ fire detection and alarm system to provide Grade ‘A’ category ‘L2’ coverage in accordance with BS5839. The system incorporated central monitoring facilities via a “Redcare” telephone line connection and interlinking of the new addressable fire alarm control panels to enable system status signals to be sent to each other.

CCTV works involved the installation of additional CCTV cameras connected to the existing 16 channel DVR recorder utilising the spare channels available to provide coverage of the dining hall and playground areas which the school considered to be vulnerable areas. We were responsible for the provision of all necessary   power   and   associated   containment   required   to   complete   the installation in accordance with EMC regulations.

The Schools were live operational facilities during our works, and as Principal Contractor we had to ensure a programme of works around the needs of the Schools, adherence to strict health & safety rules/considerations, ensure secure and safe access/egress was maintained at all times, coordinate and programme fire alarm shut downs, with the School and the Fire Alarm Maintenance Provider and coordinate  and  programme  CCTV  system  shut  downs  with Hazelwood  Schools  and  the Security  Maintenance  Provider.

Works were completed within the 5-week project duration to the satisfaction of the school, the client and their stakeholders.

Our dedication to outstanding customer services extends beyond the 8am to 5pm. Emergency call out services is 24/7 with guaranteed 2 hour response to all existing clients and customers.
