The Pyramids Centre, Portsmouth

14th October 2018

The Pyramids Centre, Portsmouth

Detect have always had an excellent working relationship with Portsmouth City Council (PCC), we have successfully carried out many large projects over the years.

We are very excited to have recently been selected to replace the aging fire alarm system at the prestigious Pyramids Centre on Southsea sea front.

The Pyramids Centre is a large entertainment venue (located just 30m from the sea), it has a swimming pool / water park, a live arena, and function rooms. The function room, located next door to the indoor leisure complex, is, along with the Portsmouth Guildhall and The Wedgewood Rooms, a popular venue for live music.

The centre opened in 1988 and has had great use over the past 30 years.

Having carried out a recent survey and inspection it was established that much of the original fire alarm system remained, various remedial works and upgrades have happened over the years but this project will see the complete replacement of the system in its entirety.

PCC chose Detect as we were able to demonstrate both value for money and also the ability to complete the project within the tight timeframe permitted.

The new system will consist of two Advanced Electronics addressable control panels, Apollo Fire Detectors new Soteria range of devices, all devices within the pool area will be weatherproof, and VESDA aspirating detection for the large function halls.

We very much look forward to providing the council with an excellent new system that will protect the centre for many years to come.

If your fire alarm system is over ten years old then let us know, we would love to talk to you about an upgrade – it’s what we do!
