Scientific Support Centre, Wakefield

Armstrong Priestley installed a fire sprinkler installation throughout a 7500m2 building which will help the Humberside, South Yorkshire, North Yorkshire and West Yorkshire Police fight crime.

This new state of the art facility will accommodate forensic facilities, DNA laboratories (including specialist clean rooms and equipment) a fingerprinting bureau and Intelligence department.

The system was designed to BS EN 12845 including technical bulletins and includes sub zoning of the system on each floor and an independent water supply which comprises an electrically driven pump set and a sprinkler water storage tank.

Fire sprinkler protection was installed into all areas of the building including the laboratories and archive storage which contains very sensitive forensic evidence.
