Stancold were successful in securing the passive fire protection works package across three new industrial units in Ruislip with main contractor, Magrock Construction.
As our first project with Magrock, our team built a firm relationship with the contractor through design meetings and site surveys, which were swiftly completed in line with the build’s programme of works.
The package involved compartment walls and office firewalls. Where the build was based on an existing industrial site and access was tight, additional planning was required to ensure that material and plant deliveries were made with little disruption to the site team.
All fire-rated partitioning was installed using Trimo’s Mineral Fibre composite panel system, of 150mm thickness, to guarantee a one-hour fire protection within the new units.
Units 1 & 2 were formed using a compartment wall, an insulated full-height partition that runs the entire width of the building, as well as office firewalls to provide vital fire protection between personnel areas and warehouses. Unit 3 required office firewalls only. All joints were fire-stopped to ensure full fire integrity while openings were created and capped for the integration of doors.
While adhering to the Government’s and Magrock’s COVID safety guidelines, the team worked hard to meet the required construction scope and installation timeline.
The team worked confidently and efficiently despite the circumstances
