Sentinel have worked with Housing 21 on a number of projects across the south of England.
Housing 21 recently purchased a number of additional properties adjacent to one of their current sites in Taunton to provide additional retirement living for the local area. Before these apartments were ready for occupation, a number of works were required including the installation of an L1 Gent addressable fire alarm system. As the adjacent site already had a Gent system in place, it was decided that the best method was to install a new node in Cory Road and network the two systems giving the site management complete visibility of the systems status. It also provided the residents and staff the benefit of phased evacuation and integrated voice alarm giving exact instruction depending on the event and location of it.
The installation brought its own challenges. Whilst in size it was small, the new system covered 6 blocks and required complete wiring through the sites network of cable ducts. a protected overhead network was installed between Cory Road and the adjacent site allowing the two systems to communicate with each other.
Sentinel delivered the project on time successfully and to the clients satisfaction. As always, we work closely with the site management team.
I wanted to email to thank you for organising Sentinel to carry out the fire alarm upgrade at Leonard Houlden Court. Niall and his team have shown themselves to be knowledgeable, polite and courteous. They carried out the works in the communal areas quickly and efficiently and left the court looking clean and tidy. I would have no hesitation welcoming them back again or, indeed, recommending them to anyone else within Housing 21Site Manager – Housing 21
