CYGNUS WIRELESS ALARM SYSTEM CHOSEN BY BAM CONSTRUCTION

16 Feb 2017

A network of Cygnus wireless fire alarm systems has been installed on a major construction site for the University of Cambridge.

The North West Cambridge Development alongside the M11 is a master plan to build a new district to be known as Eddington creating new affordable housing for university staff, as well as student accommodation, academic and commercial space. In addition to housing and infra-structure, an integral part of the new district will be a primary school, a nursery, a doctors’ surgery, supermarket and retail, senior living, a hotel, and sports pitches.

Bull Products’ Cygnus wireless alarm systems feature in the one of the construction sites in the centre of the Development where 349 homes are being built together with a food store, energy centre and health centre. Across this construction site, there are some 170 Cygnus wireless modules that have been installed by BAM Construction. These modules include fire call point alarms, combined fire call point and first aid alarms, heat detectors, smoke detectors, some of these being fitted with PIR intruder sensors, and all are linked wirelessly to a central control panel.

BAM is very pleased with the performance of the Cygnus system, Guy Milton, BAM’s Senior Site Manager commenting, “The development is a very large site, covering a lot of areas so we needed to record and receive alarm information at a central location. The Cygnus system is much better than other similar systems we have used, with no loss of signal or false alarms. It is very reliable and we particularly like the aspect that it is user-adaptable so it can be easily moved and re-addressed to suit changing circumstances on site”.

BAM has been using the Bull Products’ Cygnus system on this project since February 2016. The construction group recognised the benefits of the Cygnus wireless alarm system and specified it for installation across the site for floors, roofs and in the corridors and balconies of various buildings.
