Client Information

IQ Student Accommodation is the UK's largest provider of purpose-built student accommodation by value, and second largest by number of bedrooms. It owns 66 halls of residence, with 28,000 bedrooms. Allen Court is an accommodation complex for students at The University of Sheffield.

Project Scope

This significant project included upgrading an existing 'closed-protocol' Fire Alarm system to an 'open-protocol' version and extending the installation to a Category L1.

The system employs 8 no ADV/PLUS range 4 Loop Fire Alarm Control Panels which are connected via a fault-tolerant network in excess of 1500 Fire Alarm devices.

Fixfire VoidAlert™ was selected to protect difficult to access void areas for effective protection and reduced ongoing life cycle maintenance costs.
