Supporting Emcor With Fire Damper Remedials
EMCOR are industry leaders in integrated facilities management, and we work closely with them and their customers on a variety of air related contracts.
EMCOR approached Hydro x as they were looking for a company who could carry out all their fire damper inspections including; fire damper remedials and fire stopping across the 1Life Leisure Centre in the south.
After detailed inspections across all of the 1life sites, the required remedials were identified and presented back to EMCOR which Hydro X Air were asked to complete.
As a result of the fire damper remedials that needed to be completed, our team faced the main challenge of conducting the works in an active workplace where “customers “ are present. On top of this, the team had to operate with minimal disruption to the leisure centre operations, due to the AHU needing to be turned off for the works to be completed.
Despite the challenge highlighted above, the team were able to schedule the works in a time that would cause minimum disruption. Our projects manager and EMCOR’s account manager worked closely to plan in the respective work for it be completed in a timely manner.
Hydro X Air were tasked with the completion of a major fire stopping break within the sports hall. Completing these remedials brought the buildings into compliance with the fire safety regulations and most importantly saved EMCOR from engaging multiple contractors as Hydro-X Air were able to complete all of the work in house. This saved the business a significant amount of time and money.
