Cygnus chosen to protect prestigious Old Admiralty Building

Over 300 Cygnus Wireless Alarm System units have been installed onsite to protect the refurbishment of the world famous, Grade II listed, Old Admiralty Building that is being transformed into the new home for the Department for Education.

The Old Admiralty building has housed some of the country’s most famous historical figures, and was most recently occupied by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. It will now be the office space for 1,120 employees of the Department for Education.

Contractor, Willmott Dixon, are transforming 23,000m² of the building into a new working environment, including the upgrade of building services to introduce new mechanical ventilation and environmental controls,  offering long-term office space for government officials.

Bradley Markham, director at Bull Products, says: “This high-profile project required an alarm system that could work effectively across a vast construction site to provide maximum safety and protection to workers, during and out of working hours. Our wireless fire alarm system is the ideal solution as it can connect up to 480 individual units in 15 different zones.”

This year, our Cygnus alarm system has been protecting some of London’s most prestigious and exciting developments, including No.1 Palace Street, 22 Bishopsgate, The Wardian and Newfoundland Quay.
