In 2018 we experienced another year of growth and another year of increased staff levels in all departments. The majority of our growth came from retro fit installations, with a 77% increase on these type of projects from the previous year.
For large retro projects we often assume the role of Principal Contractor and as such, in addition to installing the sprinkler system, we can take responsibility for other trades works including:
- Boxing in of pipework
- Painting, decorating and making good
- Installation of tanks and pumps
- Concrete bases, where required , for sprinkler tanks
- Changes to incoming water supplies
- Third Party accredited fire stopping
- Connection of sprinkler to building alarm
- Core drilling
- Associated electrical work
- Resident Liaison
We have been awarded a worksafe contractor membership certificate as a Principal Contractor by SSIP and we have also successfully transitioned from ISO 9001:2008 to 2015. This accreditation assures our clients that we have procedures in place across all areas and departments to ensure we deliver a quality service.
Last year we completed the fire sprinkler installation of 7 high rise tower blocks on behalf of Whitefriars Housing Association in Coventry, which was our biggest contract to date. Currently we are in the final stages of completing 25 tower blocks for Croydon Borough Council, are one of the contractors installing sprinklers in the 213 blocks in Birmingham, and are installing to many other retro fit projects nationwide.
