The Project

The Client
Group SCS were appointed by Briggs and Forrester to design and install a smoke control system to mitigate the risks to the workforce of this 40 plus storey tower and allow construction to proceed safely.
Our Involvement
Group SCS opted for a Class D pressurisation system designed to BS EN 12101-6 since occupants engaged in construction work may take longer to evacuate than that expected in an alert or able-bodied environment

Our solution

The smoke system comprised a vertical air supply shaft serving the stairwell with run/standby pressurisation fans. A pressure control system was used to operate the system automatically and give manual override control to the fire and rescue service

The solution was installed and commissioned by Group SCS to meet the construction program and the system was compliant with BS EN12101-6.
