Chettles Yard – Student Accommodation


Commercial & Industrial


Barrat’s Electrical & Mechanical


Fire Detection

Fire detection installation across the whole student campus

Chettles Yard consists of newly built student accommodation across several blocks with multiple retail units on the ground floor level. GB Integrated Systems were approached by Barratt’s Electrical & Mechanical to deliver a demanding fire alarm project, as the previous fire company had ceased trading part way through the  job. This threw up many challenges and with only six weeks to hand over, proved at some times almost impossible.


GB Integrated Systems spared no time mobilising both the installation teams and equipment to work alongside the Barratt’s project team to deliver a fully networked and commissioned system. The whole system installed was Advance Electronics control equipment with Hochiki field devices. The team ethics demonstrated throughout were commendable, due to long shifts working seven days per week. The cause and effect programming alone took commissioning engineers over 2 weeks, yet the project was delivered on time and within budget.
