Cygnus Scores at Tottenham’s New Stadium
The renowned Cygnus alarm units have been installed throughout the major construction project for the new 61,000-seater Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Part of the Northumberland Development Project, the football stadium in London will replace White Hart Lane as the home stadium for Spurs. The new state-of-the-art development will also include more than 500 new homes, a hotel, a local community health centre, and a large sports facility.
Bull has been contracted to supply more than 200 of its Cygnus alarm devices including the Fire Call Point and First Aid Alarm, which will ensure workers are protected no matter what the emergency. The units will be in place up until project completion later this year.
A major innovation in wireless emergency fire, first aid, and intruder alarms for construction sites, the Cygnus radio system is manufactured at our depot in Hereford, and is in use on some of the largest construction projects across the UK including Crossrail, Waterloo Station, and Battersea Power Station.
It 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 systems.
Matthew Trigwell, sales director at Bull Products, says: “During work on a construction site, it’s important to ensure preventative measures are in place to protect site workers and members of the public from any potential hazards.
“No doubt Spurs fans are looking forward to the first game in the new stadium later this year, and we’re confident that our alarm systems will protect the development to the highest standards up until completion. We’re incredibly proud to be a part of such an exciting project in London.”
The home of site safety
Housebuilding currently accounts for 60% of new construction work in the UK, and with the current housing crisis, more and more homes are required each year. With the Government’s goal of building 341,000 homes by 2031 in order to meet demand, there will be an increasing number of housebuilding construction sites in development across the […]
Enhancing fire protection standards on construction sites
It is a tragic reality that fires can, and do, cause long-term injuries, financial loss and even fatalities. Construction sites are high-risk environments where fires can spread quickly. Both small and large construction projects must ensure that fire safety needs are managed from the earliest stages in order to protect workers and the public. How […]
