Scotmid Funerals

Client: Scotmid Funerals
Project Length: 3 weeks
Completion date: May 2023
HF divisions involved: Fire & Security

Brief project description: The Scotmid store in the small mining town of Prestonpans near Edinburgh was converting part of their existing store layout to create a new ‘Scotmid Funerals’ branch within the existing site layout.  The store fit out work required Fire & Security work to be completed which is why Scotmid turned to our Fire & Security division to complete the work.

We supplied and installed a new L1 Fire Alarm System that interfaced with the stores existing system. An L1 BS5839 classification fire alarm system includes automatic fire detection in all rooms, all escape routes and any void area over 800mm in height (unless it is an area of high risk). This particular fire alarm system also included sounders present throughout the new fit out that achieve a minimum sound level of 65dB(A).

Along with the fire alarm system, we also fitted a state of the art IP CCTV system and intruder alarm which runs independently of the main stores system.

Project Challenges: There were minimal challenges with this particular project.  Our trained NSI Fire Gold accredited engineers were easily able to interface the existing fire alarm system with the new one that we were fitting while the CCTV and intruder alarm set up were successfully installed followed the required plans set out by Scotmid as part of the project.  Because this was a new store built within the existing building floor space, we did not have to deal with existing wiring issues or access restrictions that can commonly present themselves to our fire & security installers on jobs in more historic buildings.
