Colt scores big at Highbury
Published:  12 August, 2008

Colt International has won a major contract for the new residential development on the site of Arsenal Football Club’s old stadium with a £60 000 project for the complete package associated with the smoke ventilation of the corridors and staircases.

Highbury Square will be six storeys high and centred around the old football pitch, which will become a communal garden.

Simon Angold of M&E contractor NG Bailey says, ‘Colt’s OPV control network allows centralised monitoring, a key requirement of this project. The company’s vast experience in shaft ventilation and smoke detection, along with its ability to provide a total solution package, made Colt the ideal supplier for this high-profile project.’

Colt EN OPV (One Per Vent) is an intelligent electronic control system that enables all addressable equipment to be integrated within a total smoke-control system. Offering flexibility, addressability, monitoring and diagnostics, EN OPV conforms to the latest standards and provides accurate and complete control with low maintenance an minimal power requirements.

In addition to controls and detection, Colt is providing automatic opening vents, Doorman individually addressable and controllable door actuation systems, Defender motorised smoke and fire dampers, as well as magnetic latching systems for cross-corridor fire doors.

Services consultant is Hoare Lea & Partners.
