£260 million Bradford Broadway retail complex safeguarded by Advanced fire panels

by Brian Sims

The Broadway is the latest UK retail venture for property investment management business Meyer Bergman, which also owns The Bentall Centre in Kingston upon Thames and London’s iconic Burlington Arcade. It’s home to over 570,000 sq ft of retail and leisure units in addition to 1,300 parking spaces.

At the heart of The Broadway’s active fire protection system is a network of ten Advanced MxPro 5 intelligent multiprotocol panels. This network is augmented by a TouchControl touchscreen repeater panel, a special evacuation zone control package, a BMS interface and a bespoke PC-based graphical user interface. The network was designed, configured and commissioned by Carlton Fire Systems, a long-time Advanced partner, with the installation of equipment and cables being undertaken by Pitts Wilson Electrical.

TouchControl is a fully-functional remote terminal and repeater with a ten-inch HD touchscreen that delivers new solutions including Active Maps and zone plans. These are easily added to the system from almost any drawing or image.

The TouchControl interface offers fire panel, network control and reporting right down to individual device level.
