Fire Alarm Upgrade



KBS was pleased to be appointed by Waitrose & Partners to upgrade the existing fire alarm system of their Woodley store. In 1993, Waitrose opened their new store Woodley 180, which was a bigger version of the same shop less than 100 yards away from Woodley Town Centre.



The existing fire alarm system had not been upgraded since the opening of the store back in 1983. However, having completed similar projects previously, our highly skilled team were able to bring in their expertise and perform this crucial task seamlessly. This project consisted of the installation of a new addressable fire alarm panel, new repeater panel, fire rated cabling, metal containment and fasteners. In addition, our team was also responsible for looking over the interface units to shutdown plant, equipment, smoke and heat detection.



We are delighted to have delivered this project within the given time and budget while being the sole contractor. This demonstrated our company’s ability to deliver the highest quality of work while facing and overcoming the considerable challenges associated with them. The successful completion of the Woodley project further cemented KBS’ long-standing relationship with Waitrose & Partners.
