McGill provided design, installation and commissioning of both the fire alarm and warden communication systems at Rosendael, a 45 room residence for ex-service men and women in Broughty Ferry, Dundee.
The works were carried out in three separate phases as part of a larger building refurbishment programme. The existing conventional fire alarm system was replaced with a modern Gent Vigilon analogue addressable system, providing Category L1 protection covering the whole building. In addition, the warden call system was upgraded to a Tynetec system capable of offering the latest technology in both hardwired and radio devices resulting in a completely flexible system that could be adapted to suit all future needs.
The building dates back to 1868 therefore the challenge was to carry out the work in such a manner so as not to compromise the features and structure of the building.
The building was occupied for the duration of the Project and continuity of both systems was essential to allow staff to carry on with their daily duties, with as little disruption as possible to residents’ own routines.
