The project is about to commence at Glengarry in Mosman. We have taken a construction management approach to complete this work, first tendering for a construction manager to coordinate the works and undertake any building work in connection with the installation of fire sprinklers, and then tendering for a specialist firm to install the sprinkler infrastructure and commission the system. We are delighted that Safin Pty Ltd are the construction managers and Superior Fire Solutions are the specialist installers.
The project has been refined over the planning period. Retrofitting sprinklers in an existing operational facility is a complex undertaking. How we will progress the work, including architectural and operational requirements has been refined and with the assistance of Superior Fire Solutions we have simplified the some elements of the design. Total project cost is $250,000. We estimate the project will take 12 weeks from commencement.
Every effort will be made to minimise disruption to residents. We will have to temporarily accommodate residents in alternate rooms at the home while water pipes and sprinkler heads are installed. We will be meeting each Monday with the construction manager and specialist installer to coordinate work for the week. We will also update progress on this blog
