Aqualeak were asked to provide a solution for the problem of identifying and alerting the building control room of the presence of water affecting the critical services at The Shard building in London. The building control room controls the electricity, air handling, plant rooms and the buildings communications suites.
A major water leak in these areas would have catastrophic affects to all parts of the building, with the possibility of power and communication loss. Following a detailed examination of the initial plans and face to face communication with the main contractors at the planning stage, Aqualeak put together a proposal, this was then robustly checked when the site was ready for them to walk around.
Each Plant room was fitted with a fully integrated and maintainable/testable system that quickly notifies should there be a presence of water detected.
