For many years, Courier House has been the home of the local newspaper ‘The Halifax Courier’, which was established in 1853. Today the building has been fully transformed following a full redevelopment and extensive renovation with primary frontage onto Kings Cross Street & located in the enviable heart of Halifax.
The 66 – 1 bed contemporary apartments over 4 levels are finished to a high spec with neutral decor, state of the art kitchens and modern stylish bathrooms. The apartments briefly comprise of an entrance hall, modern fitted kitchen and bathroom, large bedroom and spacious open plan living area.
The development is ideally located in a central location close to Halifax train station, local amenities and good transport links. With direct links to Manchester and Leeds from Halifax train station this is an ideal location for commuters.
PSB UK Ltd based in Halifax were contracted by Courier House Ltd to design, supply, install & commission the systems and has recently handed over this prestigious project to Courier House Ltd incorporating two Above Ground Ventilation Systems servicing 14 Fire Zones within the one block.
The above ground / corridor smoke control systems are designed to provide mechanical ventilation, from the stairwell and associated lobbies, in accordance with the requirements of The Approved Document B2 and BS9991.
The Staircore is protected from smoke contamination by the two-mechanical smoke control systems located in the basement of the building. Make up air to the systems is via a window actuator & automatic opening ventilator (AOV) mounted at the head of the 3 Staircores.
The mechanical smoke control systems are provided with a single Control Panel containing the computerised control logic for the control of both systems to the agreed design, CFD & cause and effect with signals back from the fire alarm panel.
Due to the nature of the design of the system we were requested by the local Building Control Officer to carry out a smoke test to confirm smoke movement within the Fire Zones.
