Smoke Control System for The Abacus Building

01 June 2009

News article image for Smoke Control System for The Abacus Building
SE Controls provided a smoke control system in compliance with Approved Document B to clear smoke from the common escape routes in the event of a fire.

The Abacus building in Birmingham has been redeveloped from its former 7 storey 1930’s coffee warehouse to create a stylish residential development, including 179 studio apartments. M&E Contractor P&R Morson chose SE Controls to provide a complete smoke ventilation package to create a safer and healthier environment for its internal occupants.

The smoke control system incorporated a vertical natural smoke shaft to remove smoke from the corridors and lobbies in the event of a fire via automatic opening doors and a certified and compliant roof vent to extract the smoke from the building.
