Manchester luxury development specifies Aico 3000 Series of fire and CO alarms

Stothers M&E Ltd has specified the Aico 3000 Series of Fire and CO alarms throughout a new tower block development in Trafford, Manchester to help protect residents from fire.

Aico-CornbrookDevelopment-21Comprising of one- and two-bedroom units, duplex and townhouse apartments, the development in Cornbrook will incorporate a library, gym, private gardens and resident lounge areas with the view to creating strong community bonds.

In line with requirements, the project will see over 1,800 Aico Fire and CO alarms installed in the 363 apartments. The Cornbrook development will utilise the 3000 Series, including the Multi-Sensor Fire alarm, for complete coverage.

Aico Regional Specification Manager, Duncan Orr, worked closely with Stothers to ensure the correct fire alarm solution for each property and was on hand to provide technical support for dwellings with unusual layouts. Duncan commented: “It was a pleasure to work with Stothers on this prestigious project of 363 luxury apartments. Thanks to our unique Multi-Sensor technology, we were able to overcome the challenges presented by the open plan design of the apartments, thus ensuring a reliable, nuisance-free system for future occupants.

“With a Category LD1 install required for the dwellings, Stothers M&E has selected Aico due to the high level of customer support, technical advice and extensive product range” says Neil Alexander, Electrical Contracts Manager for the project. “We pride ourselves with installing high quality equipment which is evident in an extremely low number of defects throughout the post-handover stage. With over 1800 Aico devices on this project, reliability is key”.

The large development of luxury dwellings in Cornbrook is due to be completed August 2021. Find out more about the Cornbrook project.
