Fire Hydrant System Update to an Aged Care Facility in Lalor

Tasked with upgrading the fire hydrant system in this Melbourne aged care facility, we decommissioned the below-ground system and reworked it above ground, installing 400 meters of pipework for the main pump room, booster, and 11 hydrants. Adapting to the facility’s specific needs and sensitivities, our team of experienced plumbers navigated the challenges seamlessly. The successful execution of the project demonstrated our commitment to safety and professionalism, completing the upgrade without disruptions. Our expertise in plumbing solutions ensured a reliable addition to the facility’s fire safety measures, showcasing our capability to handle complex projects in sensitive environments.

The Challenge

We were entrusted with the vital task of rectifying and upgrading the fire hydrant system at an aged care facility located in Melbourne’s Northern suburbs. The project involved decommissioning the existing below-ground system and completely reworking the system above ground. The objective was to enhance safety and compliance by installing and commissioning approximately 400 metres of pipework to feed the main pump room, booster, and 11 hydrants throughout the facility. An additional challenge was adapting to the specific requirements and sensitivities associated with working in such a sensitive environment as an aged care facility.
