Fire sprinkler replacement program

Update – you received this in your letterbox today…please note it is very unlikely that we will commence the work in May. The work will be rescheduled as soon practical

Back in December I alerted you to the fact that we have an issue with Omega fire sprinklers in The Botanica.  Since then we have been diligently working through the various options and costs. 

The following course of action is to be undertaken.

* Replace all Omega sprinklers as soon as practicable.  With the virus issues, this may cause a delay and we are working with the supplier on exact timing.

The work will require a two step process. 

  1. The first step will be the replacement of the sprinkler heads and this may involve some minor damage to plaster work in apartments. 
  2. The plaster/paint repair work will be a separate task and we are not able to get quotes for this work until Step 1 is complete.  It will be done as a separate task at a separate time.

The organisation we have engaged is very experienced in these matters and have done a number of apartment sprinkler replacement projects.  Their timing is still not fixed, we are hopeful that we may be able commence in May with the work expected to take around 3 months.

By the nature of the work, it will be disruptive but we will try and minimise the disruptions.  We will also ensure that all Corona Virus recommendations are followed by all working on the project.

In the meantime, please ensure that you continue to be extra diligent on fire matters.  Be careful with BBQ’s, know the locations of extinguishers, know the evacuation plans.
