FDS Contracting Appointed to Vibrant New Residential Development
Award-winning smoke ventilation contractor FDS Contracting (FDS) has been appointed to work on an exciting new residential development in Deptford, London.
Engaged by mechanical engineer LKF Limited, FDS will design, supply and install a number of smoke ventilation systems for the impressive riverside Marine Wharf site, currently delivered by developer Berkeley Homes East Thames.
The FDS team initially carried out an appraisal of two of the development’s three-core blocks, and will now begin installing the mechanical smoke ventilation and car park ventilation systems to meet the required fire safety standards.
FDS has also worked with Berkeley Homes’ technical team to develop appropriate corridor environmental systems for the 532 home project, which will mitigate heat in the buildings’ common areas.
Gerard Sheridan, Chairman at FDS, said: “We’re delighted to work with LKF on the Marine Wharf development. By designing our corridor environmental systems alongside Berkeley Homes East Thames we’ve been able to gain approval for them to be used on selected Berkeley Homes East Thames sites.”
Situated close to the River Thames at Surrey Quays, Marine Wharf comprises of a mixture of one, two and three bedroom apartments, complete with lower ground parking and an on-site Tesco Express store.
FDS is due to complete installation works in 2015.
