Client Information

iQ Student Accommodation provides accommodation for 28,000 university students. As one of the largest providers of student accommodation in the UK, IQ operates 67 sites in 27 locations.

Hayes Wharf comprises 3 blocks of student accommodation with 2 of the buildings sub-divided into 2 blocks each. Block A stands alone with 9 floors of accommodation, while the other two buildings make up Blocks B & C, D & E, each having accommodation across 4 floors.

Project Scope

Fixfire® upgraded the existing ‘closed-protocol’ Fire Alarm System serving the communal areas to a Category L2 System covering all student rooms and shared kitchens. The existing fire alarm control panel was replaced with a fully ‘Open Protocol’ ADV/Plus range control panel and a further four new control panels were installed in the respective accommodation blocks.The project was undertaken with a carefully planned and structured programme ensuring fire detection systems remained in operation overnight every night throughout the duration of the works. As part of the fire alarm system upgrade, a new Radio Paging Transmitter and five Radio Pagers were supplied to provide staff with instant alerts wherever they may be located around the premises.
