Olympic Stadium

The project comprised the design development, detailed design, procurement, installation, testing, commissioning and handover of the complete fire alarm system at the Olympic Stadium at Stratford.

The project brief outlined by Team Stadium called for a complete turnkey solution for these systems to be completed in just less than two years ready for the Stadium fit-out for the Olympics.

The team selected a Protec 6400 fire detection system due to its versatility, proven track-record and reliability. The system comprised of a 6400 network with six Display and control nodes (DCN) and ten loop processing nodes (LPN), two colour graphics workstations and a number of special panels.
There are over 3,000 Protec 6000Plus peripheral devices located around the stadium which are supplemented by six Cirrus Pro Aspirating Detection systems used to protect the buggy route and selected for their high immunity to unwanted alarms.

The PAVA system uses a distributed networked system operating over a dual redundant fibre network. A highly resilient, self-healing industrial standard switching network provides the data network. Thirteen PAVA racks are strategically located around the stadium and connected to the fire-rated fibre network. The racks are all supported by dedicated local UPS systems.

The head end is located in the Stadium Control Suite with a touch screen display and paging microphone. This is backed up with a similar arrangement in the Emergency Control Room.

The PAVA system is under automatic control of the fire alarm system in non-event mode and under full manual control on event days.

Protec also supplied the EVC system, non-critical fire telephones, Argonite Fire Suppression systems, flame detection to special hazards and other supplementary systems.

The completed systems were completed on-time and handed over to the client ready for the Stadium fit-out works to commence.
