Cygnus Protects 1700 Workers on Greenwich Peninsula Project
Greenwich Peninsula has been described as ‘an island of opportunity’ and is London’s largest single regeneration project that will feature seven neighbourhoods, 300,000 sq. ft of office space creating 15,000 new jobs, 80 shops and restaurants, as well as a tube station and lots of green space.
Bull has been contracted to supply its Cygnus Alarm System to the 150-acre space which will enhance fire safety protection during work on site from now until 2022. A major innovation in wireless emergency fire, first aid, and intruder alarms for construction sites, the Cygnus radio fire alarm system has been designed for specific use on construction sites where changing site conditions and environments demand a far higher performance from the radio than those found in standard wireless fire alarm systems.
The site has also been provided with 40 First Aid First Responder Stations which incorporate a complete first aid centre for when an emergency can’t be reported immediately and helps the challenges of maintaining adequate first aid equipment on site.
The stations can be moved to where and when they are needed the most as the site develops which ensures there is no compromise when it comes to health and safety, whilst also providing a cost-effective and time saving solution.
We’re very much delighted to be providing our Cygnus alarm systems and responder stations for this £8.4 billion project as we have for some of the most complex projects across London; which shows the flexibility and adaptability of our system. At the height of activity, there will be 1,700 workers on site and we have no doubt that our alarm systems will protect workers, no matter what the complexity of the project phase.
