Fire Sprinklers in Children’s Holiday Home


Project Brief Derbyshire Children’s Holiday Centre (DCHC) is a registered charity which provides Derbyshire children experiencing difficult times at home with a week-long holiday in Skegness, Lincolnshire. DCHC recognized that it would be the safest option to fit a sprinkler system in the multiple bedroom property on Scarborough Avenue, Skegness. The Home provides 660 holiday places every year for children who experience difficult times at home.

Running between April and October every year, the week-long break helps the children build their self-worth and self-confidence, along with their ability to communicate in groups with their peers; all in a relaxed, secure and supportive environment. At the same time, it offers some welcome respite for parents, guardians and carers alike. Project Statistics Property: Large converted property with communal areas Client: Derby Homes Project Value: Sponsored Time to complete: 6 weeks

Bill Tomlinson, Chairman of DCHC said everyone at the charity held a “deep indebtedness to Derbyshire Fire & Rescue and all involved for making this system available for the protection of Derbyshire Children; to Derby Homes for their Project Management, plumbing & electrical services and, of course, to Nationwide Fire Sprinklers for the efficient delivery and installation of the system”. He added: “Families in the community will be reassured to learn of the generosity given by those organisations, generosity which will now greatly benefit their children’s safety; and who gain so much more from the holidays DCHC provide to them.”  
With financial help and support from Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service the charity were able to employ the skills of bespoke fire safety system experts, Nationwide Fire Sprinklers to ensure that the holiday home was thoroughly protected against the threat of fire. Recognising the valuable work done by the charity, Nationwide Fire Sprinklers along with Xylem (water pump suppliers) and Reliable (pipework and sprinkler head supplier) provided essential materials free of charge, ensuring that the project was able to proceed.
Keith Rhodes, Managing Director, said, “When we were approached by Derby Homes to be involved in the project it was morally the right thing to do. DCHC do such great work for the children of Derbyshire it was a pleasure to offer our help and free materials. Sprinklers provide a high level of protection and complete peace of mind for those lucky enough to stay at the Holiday Centre.”

At an open day in January 2018 to celebrate the handover of the project, Nationwide Fire Sprinklers took along their Fire Sprinkler Demonstration Unit and gave live displays of the effectiveness of fire suppression. This proved to be a useful and valuable tool to show people how the rapid deployment of water from the sprinkler head not only prevented the fire from spreading but completely extinguished the flames.

Whilst the primary purpose of any BS9251 system is for the preservation of life, it is commonplace for the sprinklers to fully control fires.

“Very thorough”

We just wanted to pass on that we were very pleased with Dylans visit on Tuesday. He was very thorough in all the checks  and also got to the bottom of a knocking noise that we have been having that has never seemed to get sorted before.

Thanks.
Best regards 

Mr & Mrs B******

Great at communicating

On another note would just like to give some positive feedback about the team that come down here.

The guys are professional and have been great at communicating with us on site.

From a site perspective, having labour on site which is knowledgeable and, willing to explain from their perspective what and why has been exceedingly useful to myself as part of a site team.

They have also been very good at doing the same with our site electrician and plumber, which has made the sequencing and finishing of works far smoother.

If you could please pass on my gratitude to them.
