fire and security specialists

North Wales-based Jackson Fire & Security have completed a £40,000 contract to install both fire and intruder alarms, along with access control measures and a CCTV camera system for a new build school on the Isle of Anglesey.

The fire and security specialists installed and commissioned the systems over the last six months while construction was on-going at the new £4.5m Ysgol Rhyd Y Llan, in the village of Llanfaethlu.

The new build is to replace the three existing schools of Ysgol Llanfachraeth, Ysgol Ffrwd Win and Ysgol Cylch Y Garn. The project comprises the construction of a single storey community primary school for 150 pupils and 20 nursery places who will benefit from the latest facilities and resources.

The firm’s project manager, Imran Makki, comments:

“We’ve got an enviable reputation for working in the education sector, and this new contract continues our expertise in the field.

“As it’s a brand new site we enjoy offering our expertise and assistance with design to ensure the staff and students are protected by the right kind of safety equipment.”

The main contractor for the project is Wynne Construction who continue their success on the 21st Century Schools Programme.

Graham Dickson, Contracts Manager, Wynne Construction said:

“We worked directly with Jackson Fire & Security, which was a change from our usual form of contracting and gave positive results for the scheme.

“Together with the Jackson team, we were able to manage the expectations of the client and work in partnership with our electrical contractor, Lloyd Morris Electrical.  There were very few issues and the job was completed on time.”

Jackson Fire & Security are continuing their good working relationship with Wynne Construction along with local electrical contractor, Fred Weston Electrical by teaming up  on the new £10.5m primary school for Ysgol Pen Barras and Rhos Street School at the shared Glasdir site in Ruthin.

Formed in 1991, the company has built a reputation for quality, reliability and service, and is a NSI gold-accredited partner for fire and security systems.

Jackson Fire & Security employs 40 people across branches in North Wales, North West England, Yorkshire, Teesside, the Midlands, Cambridgeshire and Surrey.
