AFM Commercial Manager, Mark Le Lay is pleased to report that the Projects team has secured the fire sprinkler installation contract for four existing Andium Homes high rise blocks, De Quetteville, Cedars (low and high rise) Windsor Court and La Collette. This has been a culmination of nearly 18 months of work with Andium, together with AFM’s partner Vipond Fire Protection Limited in Glasgow.
AFM were able to demonstrate our ability in this area during the completion of the work on the first high rise block at Plaisant Court, which was the Island’s first high rise block to undergo sprinkler protection since the Grenfell fire in 2017.
Whilst carrying out the first high-rise installation at Plaisant Court, AFM, together with Vipond, hosted a seminar to profile our capabilities to the Island’s businesses. The seminar was well attended and has led to AFM undertaking additional fire sprinkler works at Hue Court, Jersey Cheshire Home and several smaller projects for other residential clients.
Mark commented “This is truly a great achievement for everyone involved in the project to-date and more importantly, clearly demonstrates Andium’s continued confidence in AFM, both within the FM and Project divisions. This is also an opportunity to upskill our engineers and consider ongoing planned and reactive work.”
