Fire Alarm Testing & Ceiling work – DMS Watson

Our team information can be found at the following link Facilities & Project Team

We have now received confirmation from the contractor working on Fire Alarm upgrades, testing and ceiling works in DMS Watson. CESB will be putting up signage in and around the site.

Saturday 21st May 2022 & Sunday 22nd May 2022 – All Day The Ground Floor bookable student pods will be unavailable this weekend due to snagging work with Fire Alarm, some additional sounders will be fitted in this area to ensure within the pods the legal minimal decibel level is met.

Monday, 23rd May 2022 – 07:00 to 09:00 – The Fire Alarms will be tested for 2 hours, floor by floor, This is to tally with the usual fire alarm testing that takes place on Monday’s, so hopefully will be a familiar sound to students and staff.

Monday, 6th June 2022 (early morning) – Investigative works to the 1st floor ceiling will be carried out to plan the works and equipment needed for the weekend, but that will not impact too much, as it will be just a member of the install team and a step ladder assessing the ceilings.

Saturday, 11th, Sunday 12th and Monday, 13th June 2022 – Ceiling works on the 1st floor will be taking place. The area will be barriered off for the duration, so will affect the Accessibility entrance and the use of the 1st floor toilet over this period.
