As MSU has an old construction, wiring would include civil work. Hence, that was clearly not an option for them. A large number of students gathered at one place and a single fire can affect all of them. Most of the furniture in a class room such as chairs, tables and desks are made from wood which is easily flammable. Air-conditioned rooms can trap fire, practical labs, smoking and accidental fires, in the same manner can lead to life threatening scenarios. In cafeterias where commercial grade kitchens are in operation to feed thousands of students and staff, unpreventable accidents in the kitchen equipment can lead to ignition of fire. With more dense occupants in an area, the risk for fire load increases and at the same time, evacuation process gains more importance. Even in case of power cuts, terror attacks or any other emergencies, quick and planned evacuation is extremely important. One of the key requirements of MSU was to have early detection so the key stakeholders can contribute to life and property safety. Major design considerations for MSU were safety, technical leverage, highly reliable system that could last longer with low maintenance and installation cost.
The consultant was given this task to find a solution that satisfied MSU’s requirements completely. After analyzing the necessities, he recommended NFire Solution to MSU as the perfect fit. NFire Solution is an ideal solution as it is highly scalable, cost effective and highly reliable. A site survey was conducted for MSU by NFire Team.
