Fire Design Solutions appointed to South East London village

The design and installation skills of award-winning fire safety system contractors Fire Design Solutions (FDS) have seen it appointed to a unique residential development in Greenwich, London.

Working alongside contractor Willmott Dixon, FDS will work on a number of apartment blocks in the Greenwich Millennium Village community.

Designed by architects Jestico + Whiles and developed by a JV consortium of Taylor Wimpey Central London & Countryside Properties, the site combines living spaces with green areas and parks to provide unique, community-focussed accommodation for the area.

The FDS team has been tasked with the design, supply and installation of mechanical smoke venting and corridor environmental systems for five of the residential blocks, three of which are 10 storeys high.

Gerard Sheridan, Chairman at FDS, said:

“Having worked with Willmott Dixon in the past we’re delighted to have been appointed to their latest project.

“Varying between three and 10 storeys high, each of the buildings requires different considerations, but our in-depth knowledge of the design and installation of smoke venting and corridor environmental systems enables us to provide the most appropriate solution for each building.”

This stage of the development is due to be completed in spring 2015, with the project to be finalised in April 2018.
