FDS for Paddington Gardens development

Published:  03 May, 2018

Fire Design Solutions, FDS

Fire Design Solutions (FDS) has secured its latest contract to supply smoke ventilation and corridor environmental systems to the new Paddington Gardens residential development. The award-winning fire safety systems contractor will provide full consultation, design and installation services.

The contract includes the supply and installation of residential smoke ventilation and corridor environmental systems up to 21 levels in each block, as well as the basement car park and loading bay smoke ventilation system.

During the design phase FDS was able to make recommendations to help optimise the layout of the building by planning the systems in the most efficient way for example, combining the loading bay and car park ventilation systems.

Paddington Gardens, which occupies a 3.8 acre site within London’s Paddington Waterside regeneration has been designed by Assael Architecture. Also working on the project are Powell Dobson Architects, acting for the client in the delivery of the scheme. When completed, the four residential towers will comprise one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom apartments and penthouses with views of the surrounding landscaped gardens and London skyline.

The Paddington Gardens project is the latest in a series of collaborations between FDS and Ark M&E over the last five or more years. FDS was engaged early on, and has been providing consultancy on the design for the development’s fire safety features.

Fire Design Solutions began installation of the systems in January 2018, and the Paddington Gardens project is expected to be completed in the latter half of 2019.
