1st December 2011


New Nottingham University Samworth Academy benefits from advanced ID3000-based fire safety solution from Notifier by Honeywell.

Students at Nottingham University Samworth Academy (NUSA) are benefiting from the very latest in fire safety protection, thanks to a new Notifier ID3000-based fire system installed by Notifier Gold Partner Thompson AVC Ltd.

NUSA is the UK's first ‘university academy' for 11-18 year-old students and is the result of a unique partnership between the University of Nottingham and philanthropic local businessman, David Samworth. The brand new £24 million campus, opened by Olympic gold medallist Dame Kelly Holmes includes a 300-seat lecture theatre, recording studio, internet café and central three-storey glass atrium.

The Notifier ID3000 control panel interfaces with some of the main building management systems such as access control and disabled refuge points, giving complete confidence to all occupants. The intelligent and robust Notifier system fits perfectly with the rest of the cutting-edge CCTV, induction loops, intruder alarm and public address systems installed by Thompson AVC in this ground-breaking project.

"The state-of-the art-learning facilities for students, staff and visitors at the impressive NUSA campus are matched by Notifier's equally-advanced fire protection capability," confirms Mark Prior, marketing manager, Thompson AVC.

For Derek Portsmouth, national business manager, Notifier, "The installation at NUSA is a perfect example of how the ID Series is ideally-designed to control integrated security, fire, communication and life safety systems within a hard-working education environment."
