Appointed to the contract by MITIE Engineering Services - the project’s property management consultants - and working alongside mechanical and electrical engineers McCann and Partners, Vaughan Sound were invited to supply, install, test and commission a specialist life safety sound scheme for the Combined Services Centre's magistrates’ court and fire station. The client also requested an audio-visual solution for the lecture and conference rooms within the police and fire stations.
Vaughan Sound fitted a Baldwin Boxall VIGIL Eclipse voice evacuation system. Designed to distribute evacuation messages during an emergency, the system was specified for its reliability and compliance with British Standards (BS 5839 Part 8).
The team capably supplied, installed, tested and commissioned the equipment ensuring the highest standard of product integration. Completed on time and within budget, Vaughan Sound was thrilled to be involved in this pioneering project.
An infrared induction loop system was also provided for the magistrates’ court and the privacy and waiting areas. Designed to assist the hearing impaired, Sennheiser and Current Thinking products were selected for the installation for their impressive audio and speech quality.
The fire station itself benefitted from a public address system that can be utilised as an alarm to indicate any incoming emergency calls.
Speaking on the project, Dan Carter, Electrical Engineer at McCann and Partners said: "The project was a great success, and our team are very happy with the completed installation. We thoroughly enjoyed working alongside Vaughan Sound and were very impressed with the professionalism, expertise and efficiency they showed in meeting the project brief and providing technical solutions for the Combined Services Centre."
