Fire Design Solutions, smoke ventilation, ventilation

Fire Design Solutions is supplying a number of its smoke-ventilation systems for the residential element of the Royal Gateway development in the Canning Town area of London. FDS was appointed by Galliard Construction. There will be five apartment buildings and nearly 2500 m2 of commercial space.

FDS is supplying, installing and commissioning mechanical smoke-ventilation systems for the residential blocks. Corridor environmental systems will be used to mitigate heat in the buildings’ common corridors in day-to-day operating conditions. Car-park ventilation systems are part of the contract.

Gerald Sheridan, chairman of FDS, said, ‘In cases such as this, our experts can work directly with the project’s fire-design consultant and the end client to provide systems which not only meet fire-safety requirements but can also offer further benefits, including improved resident comfort.’

Residential occupations are due to begin in third quarter of 2016.
