The project included a comprehensive review of all aspects of fire protection compliance within the existing site facilities, over a multi-stage project delivery process from pre-design investigations to construction administration.
Our DMA Engineers team was engaged to undertake:
- Site audit and production of all documentation for the replacement of the Emergency Warning and Intercommunication System (EWIS) to meet all legislative compliance requirements, including:
- Main EWIS panel.
- All speakers, sounders, strobes, and cabling throughout the subject buildings.
- System networking within the subject buildings and to the site’s communication network.
- Review and confirmation of Fire Hydrant design to comply with all relevant codes and ensure suitability for all statutory and authority operational requirements
- Fire-Engineered solutions for fire hydrant system and EWIS which did not achieve Deemed to Satisfy NCC provisions, as appropriate.
- Investigation, completion, and certification of the existing passive fire systems including development of penetration registers and design of passive fire solutions to achieve compliance.
Showcasing our fire engineering team’s full-project-lifecycle approach, our scope covered multiple project phases, including:
- An initial thorough pre-design investigation to confirm the existing conditions at the site.
- A considered design and documentation phase including extensive consultation with site stakeholders.
- Successful delivery of a high-quality tender package including cost estimations.
- Assistance with submission review and tenderer selection.
- Subsequent construction administration services to ensure a high-quality outcome at site.
Through our continuous engagement over the life of the project we were able to offer Metro South Hospital and Health Service certainty and consistency at all project stages and ensure the needs of stakeholders were continuously met by a holistic project strategy.
