The Chatswood

Quick overview

In October 2014, Toga Construction engaged us to design and install a combined sprinkler and hydrant system and a detection and EWIS system to protect their new multi-purpose development, Chatswood Place.

Our goals and challenges

The Chatswood is a high-rise tower close to Victoria Avenue. It features 1 courtyard, 2 private rooftops with BBQs – and 156 apartments designed by award-winning architects, Kann Finch.

Their brief was an exciting challenge: to design and install a solution that integrated a hydrant and sprinkler system with a dry fire detection and EWIS system. However, our biggest hurdle wasn’t bringing them together, but satisfying a range of different needs. The development was a 12-storey site that incorporated apartments, commercial spaces, carparks and a private courtyard.

Force Fire worked tirelessly to have all areas handed over free of defects by the required dates allowing the builder and developer to successfully move in tenants at the required times.

Key outcomes

Throughout the project, the client made many changes to the initial concept. And we made sure to adapt.

Overall, we successfully designed and installed a compliant system – that’ll protect business owners, residents and staff for years to come.
