Alma Primary School in the London borough of Enfield commissioned RGE Services to design and install a comprehensive fire alarm system that would promptly alert staff and pupils in the event of fire.
The design process was completed by an RGE Services contract manager, FIA-qualified for design and installation as well as maintenance of systems.
Design involved creating full schematics of the buildings, as none existed since the school had been built before Enfield Council digitalised its records. The school also needed support with technical requirements as its knowledge of fire systems was limited at this stage.
On completion and approval of the design, we appointed a third-party independent designer to audit and validate what we’d produced, mitigating the risk of non-compliance.
Once final adjustments had been made to the design, a team of eight engineers installed the upgraded system, supported by our central service desk and management team.
Prior to client hand over and training, the system was checked by another contract manager and our fire operations manager.
