Wardian London

Prestigious London residential development protected with Cygnus.

Project overview

Wardian London is a prestigious residential development in Canary Wharf. Combining modern architecture with innovative landscaping, it sets a new standard for the high-rise living experience in the heart of London’s new financial centre. Complete in 2019, it includes two iconic apartment towers with 764 rooms, as well as restaurants, shops and a cinema.

The challenge

Wingate Electrical, M&E contractor for Ballymore, required an alarm system that would provide a high-strength signal and connectivity, despite signal interference and obstacles such as concrete and steel.

The solution

The Cygnus Fire Call Point Alarm was installed during the construction of Wardian London. The alarm ensures that when a call point is pressed, it won’t sound immediately, but it will still notify the fire marshals and site managers of an alert, so they can verify the alarm before evacuating the entire site.

“With high-rise buildings in particular, there is a real need to protect all levels of a building from a fire during construction – the Cygnus system is the ideal solution to provide end-to-end fire safety.”
