Stothers M&E Ltd provide building engineering services across the UK and Ireland, with regional offices in Glasgow and Warrington, the Belfast-based national contractor was awarded a £75m development of two tower blocks in Manchester.

In order to ensure the residents were safe and protected from fire, Stothers worked with Aico to utilise their flagship 3000 Series throughout the development.

The new homes for private rent will transform the area of Cornbrook in Trafford, Manchester, bringing a new lease of life to an underused site near the tram station.

Comprising of one- and two-bedroom units, duplex and townhouse apartments, the development will also incorporate a library, gym, private gardens and resident lounge areas with the view to creating strong community bonds.

In line with requirements, the project will see over 1,800 Aico Fire and CO alarms installed in the 363 apartments. Aico are proud to be the leader in home life safety, offering a variety of devices and solutions to guarantee protection for every home.

The Cornbrook development will utilise Aico’s technologically advanced 3000 Series, including the pioneering Multi-Sensor Fire alarm, for complete coverage.

Aico Regional Specification Manager, Duncan Orr, worked closely with Stothers to ensure the correct fire alarm solution for each property and was on hand to provide technical support for dwellings with unusual layouts. Duncan comments “It was a pleasure to work with Stothers on this prestigious project of 363 luxury apartments. Thanks to our unique Multi-Sensor technology, we were able to overcome the challenges presented by the open plan design of the apartments, thus ensuring a reliable, nuisance-free system for future occupants.”

“With a Category LD1 install required for the dwellings, Stothers M&E have selected Aico due to the high level of customer support, technical advice and extensive product range,” says Neil Alexander, Electrical Contracts Manager for the project.

“We pride ourselves with installing high quality equipment which is evident in an extremely low number of defects throughout the post-handover stage. With over 1800 Aico devices on this project, reliability is key.”
