Project: 259 City Road

The Situation:

Ardmore Construction is constructing a new building at City Road, London, Islington. They contacted Fire Fighter 24/7 because they became aware that they may need to install a fire sprinkler system in line with the regulations of section 20 of the London Building Act 1939. The act stipulates that when a building is greater than 30 metres in height and or exceeds 930 metres squared, a fire sprinkler system must be fitted throughout the building.


Ardmore Construction asked for our expert advice on the Section 20 London Building Act regulations and residential sprinkler systems. Ardmore sought our advice on the most appropriate installation for the 15 floor building plans. We responded by producing a detailed strategy of the most effective fire sprinkler installation which would provide maximum protection for both occupants and the building itself.

Initially the plan presented a few challenges, one of which was figuring out the most effective way of indicating where a fire had broken out within the 15 floor building. We deduced that the best solution was to link into the existing analogue fire alarm panel. We then linked the panel into a switch flow system that integrated each floor into the system, therefore if a fire ever did occur the fire brigade would know exactly what floor the fire was on.


Ardmore Construction have awarded us with the installation of a fire sprinkler system at City Road, London, Islington due to our ability to provide a practical, efficient and cost-effective solution to their requirements. Ardmore will now be fully compliant with Section 20 of the London Building Act 1939, and will be applying fully automated fire protection to their new construction.
