Vodafone Christchurch

Building area: 9,500 m²
Max. occupancy: 880
Finish: Sep 2016

The purpose-built, five-level facility at Tuam Street allowed Vodafone to bring together its current 450 Christchurch staff – working three existing sites – into one central location, with significant capacity for future expansion and growth.

FSE – Fire Safety Equipment, together with Fire Solutions were responsible for the implementation of a gaseous flood system to protect the communications room of the Vodafone facility. FSE worked with our client and fire engineers to select the LPG iFlow IG-541 inert gas flood system as the most suitable for the environment.

The LPG iFlow IG-541 inert gas flood system was selected due to being the agreed smartest solution to protect the enclosure. IG-541 was selected due to its high pressure and necessary location of the cylinder bank. LPG iFlow IG-541’s unique valve design also provided advantages in that a manifold was not required in this particular job. Reducing cost and install time for all concerned.

FSE worked with all stakeholders and above supplying product, provided such services as design drawing, design verification, system hydraulic calculations, and room integrity testing/verification.

Christchurch Justice & Emergency Services Precinct

Building area: 42,000 m²
Max. occupancy: 2000
Finish: Early-Mid 2017

The Christchurch Justice & Emergency Services Precinct (the Precinct) is a $300 million anchor project, led by the Ministry of Justice.

The Precinct brings together all justice and emergency services in one purpose-built, leading-edge precinct in central Christchurch. The Precinct, made up of 3 buildings (the Justice Building, the Emergency Services Building and a car park for operational vehicles) is located in the central city block bordered by Colombo, Tuam, Durham and Lichfield Streets in Christchurch’s central business district. Its location will play a critical role in defining the southern edge of a more compact and vibrant city centre.

An estimated 2,000 people will work in or use the 42,000m2 Precinct daily. At the peak of construction, 500 to 600 people will be working onsite each day.

It is the largest multi-agency government co-location project in New Zealand’s history and the first major public building to be built in Christchurch by the government since the earthquakes of 2010 and 2011.

The Precinct will help restore confidence in Christchurch as a vibrant city of which its people can be proud. This is an important and exciting initiative for the people of Christchurch and all New Zealanders.

FSE – Fire Safety Equipment, together with Triangle Fire Protection were responsible for the implementation of a gaseous flood system to protect the ICT and Radio room of the precinct. FSE worked with our client and fire engineers to select the Ansul Sapphire Novec 1230 system as the most appropriate gaseous flood system for this environment.

The Ansul Sapphire system was selected due to being the agreed safest solution in the seismically active environment due to its reduced piping and cylinder footprint, lower pressure cylinders, and lower flood rate required to protect the environment.

FSE worked with all stakeholders and above supplying product, provided such services as design drawing, design verification, system hydraulic calculations, and room integrity testing/verification.
