Chettles Yard

SE Controls' brief was to supply, install and project manage a full turnkey solution to meet the fire safety and smoke ventilation needs in three of the new buildings at the Nottingham Chettles Yard student housing development.

The challenge was to match the client's requirements of maximising the space available on each floor by stepping outside of Approved Document B and into the realms of a fire engineered solution.

The solution chosen, SHEVTEC® Extended Travel Distance system uses a dual smoke shaft and fan ventilated solution linked by smoke sensors through SE Controls’ powerful OSLoop® control system, which when triggered determines which shaft is closest to the fire and automatically opens the smoke shaft doors on each floor to extract smoke away from escape routes, corridors and stairs. Once actuated, OSLoop continues to monitor the entire system throughout the incident to ensure the system maintains its performance in accordance with the imminent EN12101 part 9 standard.
