Case Studies

Birmingham City Council – Retrofit Project

Following the Grenfell tragedy, Birmingham City Council committed to retrospectively installing fire sprinklers to all their tower blocks.

Our direct clients for the project were SES (subsidiary of Wates Group) Engie UK and Fortem.

Works undertaken:

  • Sprinkler specification document
  • Design and installation of sprinkler system
  • Design and installation of fire alarm
  • Acting as industry expert advising AHJ

Challenges:

  • Supply experienced labour
  • Gaining access to flats particularly during Covid

One of the representatives for BCC made a point of thanking us for our work and to say what an excellent job our Contracts Manager, Tristan Rhodes has done.

At project completion we had protected 173 tower blocks/ 7362 flats and installed 47,869 sprinkler heads.

Triangle Fire Systems along with Blazemaster, Engie and West Midlands Fire Service invite you to see the story of this life saving project unfold.
