Project Title

Edinburgh Quartermile





Main Contractors


Project value

£400 million

More than 100 SiteProtect alarm systems were installed on one of the largest regeneration schemes in Scotland.

Quartermile in Edinburgh features a cosmopolitan mix of luxury apartments, vibrant cafes and thriving businesses in a prime city centre location. The project includes more than 1,000 apartments, a hotel, 300,000sqft of office space and 78,000sqft of leisure space for bars and restaurants.

Bull supplied more than 145 of its SiteProtect alarm units including the Fire Call Point Alarm and heat detectors. Bull also supplied its mobile detection product which is incorporated into the fire point stations. Unlike mobile fire point stations, heat and smoke detectors have to be fixed to ceilings or walls using ladders or podiums, which can be cumbersome and impose a risk of a fall from height.

The mobile detection device was the ideal solution for the Quartermile project as the contractors required a solution that wouldn’t tamper with the ceilings due to hazardous substances. The height adjustable device can be raised to a height of over 3 metres allowing the detector attached to the top to be positioned at any height between 2.1 and 3.2 metres from the ground.

“Our portfolio of project wins emphasises the versatility of our SiteProtect alarm system and that it can be used for any project during the construction phase, no matter what the requirements.”
