Potens has been using Tecserv to provide their fire alarm system maintenance service and advice for a number of years. Potens like to support local businesses and when they acquired Larwood House Tecserv was appointed to install a fire alarm system, emergency lighting and fire extinguishers to ensure all safety standards would be met.
When carrying out fire alarm system maintenance engineers need to be mindful of the anxiety alarm testing may cause to some residents. This requires working closely with the care home manager so they can arrange appropriate care for each individual.
Larwood House is a large spacious bungalow with nine fully en-suite bedrooms. There are two lounges and a large dining room and spacious kitchen. Heathfield Gardens is a Registered Home, including nursing care, for 11 individuals with learning disabilities.
The project to install a fire alarm system, emergency lighting and fire extinguishers at Larwood House required working to a very tight schedule as Potens wished to have the home ready to receive residents as soon as possible. Many structural alterations were required to provide independent rooms, kitchens and en-suite bathroom facilities. Therefore several contractors were working on site simultaneously. Tecserv had to liaise with the project manager to ensure our works were scheduled appropriately and would complete on time.
