A busy on-campus University Sports Centre at Sydney Uni Sports and Aquatic Centre comprising a swimming pool (used for training elite athletes including Olympic representatives), sports hall, squash courts, gymnasiums, restaurants and retail shops needed new safety measures. The Sports hall was complicated due to its sheer size and installation difficulties.
In consultation with the Project Managers (CMS) and Sydney University’s design Staff Rassco determined that the centre needed smoke detection as well as a comprehensive evacuation system to ensure that its many visitors were safe. In order to overcome the obstacles associated with protecting the unusually high ceilings, Rassco engineered and installed a VESDA System in the Sports hall. The system provided a cost effective solution eliminating ongoing expensive and often disruptive maintenance.
