Smoke control and fire safety systems within custodial and other secure facilities have a unique set of design, control and system challenges to overcome, just one of these is ‘protect in place’ that requires the secure relocation of occupants during a life threatening situation. Adexsi UK is a great fit to the challenges of custodial and other projects with special requirements as the company can combine, knowledge, design excellence, established relationships with the relevant authorities and one of the World’s leading, fully accredited product ranges.
Due to this ‘fit’, Adexsi have recently been selected for a number of custodial projects with the £20 million Cookham Wood new build Young Offenders Institution offering specific challenges. The project requires the combination of collaborative working under the adoption of BIM and informal implementation of Government Soft Landings. A fully integrated team have been selected to work to a tight timescale and to exceed cost saving targets, with Adexsi and EMCOR providing a combination of mechanical and natural smoke ventilation systems that help achieve cost and energy saving targets as they also provide natural ventilation on a day to day basis.
