PCB was engaged by DMM to carry out the upgrade of various buildings, and fire safety systems, within the HMAS Kuttabul facility (Potts Point) so as to afford the site with conformity to current BCA, DDA, and MFPE requirements.
The works were concentrated in the two wings of the main six storey structure which houses Offices, Canteen, Security, Stores, Kitchens, Bar & recreational areas, and Living Accommodation.
It was necessary to carry out these works whilst not shutting down existing systems; as such backups were provided, and a new Fire Panel was installed whilst the old system was still functioning.
The works incorporated: Fire Hydrant Booster, Hydrants, Hose Reels, Smoke Detectors, Fire Doors, Occupant Warning System, Fire Collars, Door Hardware, Smoke Sealing, Electrical RCD Protection, Signage, Emergency Lights, Exit Lights, Fire (compartment) Separation, Addressable FIP, and much more.
All works were completed to schedule, and within budget. PCB also provided for the final certification of the works.
