Automatic Sprinklers and Fire Protection

Fugen has an excellent track record of providing fire sprinklers and fire protection capabilities for aged care

In 2013, the NSE Government brought in an initiative to reduce the fire risk for elderly and vulnerable residents. The Sprinkler Retrofit Program involved the installation of automatic sprinkler systems in aged care facilities. Fugen was enlisted to provide fire protection upgrades across multiple aged care facilities, ensuring there was little or no disruption to operations.

To accomplish this, Fugen used our considerable KNOW HOW to:

  • Design, construct and coordinate the installation of automatic fire sprinklers and other fire protection including fire walls, fire doors, water tanks and pump sheds
  • Ensure everyday operations of the aged care facilities were unaffected
  • Build positive relationships with sub-contractors, facility management, staff and the public
  • Keep stakeholder communication open and consistent
  • Overcome a variety of challenges including complex roof spaces, high-level lead dust removal, kitchen and back of house areas, multiple linked facilities on large sites and more
  • Ensure project works were completed on time or, as was often the case, ahead of time, with no WHS incidents
