Bull Products supplied more than 300 of its SiteProtect Wireless Alarms to the world famous, Grade II listed, Old Admiralty Building that has been transformed into the new home for the Department for Education.

The Old Admiralty building has housed some of the country’s most famous historical figures, and was most recently occupied by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. It is now the office space for 1,120 employees of the Department for Education.

Contractor, Willmott Dixon, has transformed 23,000m² of the building into a new working environment, including the upgrade of building services to introduce new mechanical ventilation and environmental controls, offering long-term office space for government officials.

“We are proud to be tasked with such an important development. The project was delivered by an experienced team familiar with the security, logistical and technical challenges of working on high-profile London projects.”

Over 300 SiteProtect alarm units were installed onsite to protect the whole building during the construction phase. Being a Grade II listed building, great care was taken to ensure the building remained safe and secure during the refurbishment process.

“This high-profile project required an alarm system that could work effectively across a vast construction site to provide maximum safety and protection to workers, during and out of working hours. Our wireless fire alarm system was the ideal solution as it connects up to 480 individual units in 15 different zones.”
