University of Oxford – Old Road Campus Research Build, Oxford

Gas Detection System Installation – Completed 2020

Alongside International Gas Detectors (IGD) we delivered a whole building Gas Detection system to protect the people working within the building against hazardous gases used.

We installed a total of 45 CO2 sensors to multiple labs spread across the building, each unit was connected to a room status indicator and sounder-beacon, ensuring the lab users were warned of dangerous levels of gas both before or after entering a room dependant on the levels being monitored.

Each room status indicator has its own unique identification and is wired to a central system controller for that level/floor.  All controllers are linked to each other and a 15″ monitor located at the reception desk, enabling a complete overview of the whole system at a touch of a screen, and of course an alert of any dangerous levels.

The warning systems did not stop there. We also interfaced each controller into the buildings management system so that the building management team received an alert via email and text message too!

The installation was wired in low smoke, zero halogen thermoplastic sheath FP200 Gold cable, fixed to the containment systems throughout the building.

The University of Oxford’s Jenner Institute were working at unprecedented speed to develop and deliver the The Oxford/AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine within the building whilst we were carrying out our installation. A strict programme of works were put in place so that we never caused any inconvenience to the teams working on this vital vaccine.
