Beckley Point

Plymouth's tallest building, Beckley Point, nears completion with all internals complete students moved in last weekend. This stunning twenty three story building consisting of three cores utilises a natural smoke shaft with EN12101pt 8 Dampers, AOV windows, louvered roof vents and a mechanical extract system comprising duty and standby fans to provide smoke ventilation to all the communal areas.

A late change to the layout created an unprotected area that required a mechanical extract system and Smoke Control Systems were able to supply fans and controls in addition to the original equipment in time for commissioning and handover. Two, of the latest version, Commsmaster Visio controllers were installed in the Reception Area and at the Fire Control Point giving the authorised personal a choice of locations to operate the system, which comprises of single zone controllers located in a central riser and local thermostats for day to day ventilation.

Construction on site started in 2015 and we started installing smoke shaft vents and controls in November 2016 with roof vents being installed in Spring 2017.

Working closely with the Machanical and Electrical Contractor T Clarke, who installed all the field wiring resulted in a seamless integration of the controls with the AOV Windows supplied directly to the Main Contractor Kier Construction.

Planning laws relaxed to allow development of offices to residential apartment blocks.

Riverside House

With the changes to planning law now allowing office blocks to be converted to residential apartment blocks many developers are inheriting projects where there is no provision for Smoke Ventilation and are having to find a solution at a very late stage in the rebuild. Here at Smoke Control Systems we have helped several developers with this very situation, turning their last minute problems in to compliant solutions in a very short time span. One such system like this was at Cathedral House.
