Victorian Emergency Services Organisation
Replacement of Fire Hydrant Service
JNJ’s on-call Plumber attended to a burst fire service at FRV’s Burnley Training Centre.Temporary repairs were quickly effected to ensure their fire system remained in service.
Upon investigation into the cause and extent of the issue, further evidence of corrosion was detected in various sections of pipework to the Training Tower.
A Condition Report detailing the extent of the problem was then prepared and issued to our clients, and a quotation was created to replace the damaged sections of pipework.
On acceptance of the quote, work plans were created to ensure a water supply and interim fire service were made available for the duration of the works.
A Fire Sprinkler Contractor was engaged to design & install the new system sections to the Training Tower, and the works were carefully scheduled to ensure the daily activities of the busy Training Centre were not disrupted.
Upon replacing the damaged pipework sections and fittings, we integrated them into the existing fire system, and reconnected it to the main water supply. The new pipework sections were also painted and labelled in accordance with ASS2419.1: 2005.
The recommissioned system was Pressure and flow tested, and the results and Project Completion Report were provided to FRV as part of the detailed As-Installed documentation dossier.
