Swansea University have chosen Chubb for fire protection in their new Bay Campus.

The new campus, a 65-acre site on the seafront at Neath Port Talbot, includes the Great Hall, which contains a £32 million 700-seater auditorium and arts centre, halls of residence, academic faculties and a library. It was opened in September 2015 and accommodates more than 1,500 students.

In winning the tender, Chubb is providing more than 4,000 portable fire extinguishers, supported by a four-year maintenance contract. Chubb also retained the existing contract for maintaining the extinguishers at the University's Singleton Campus.

Philip Moremon, compliance officer at Swansea University, said, "Because of the size of the new campus, it made sense to review our existing relationships and put the entire University's fire extinguisher contract up for tender.

"At both campuses, delivering quality products, providing value for money and reliability were three important factors when we selected a new supplier, and Chubb met all of these requirements."

Chubb will install the Good DesignTM award-winning range of Chubb FX extinguishers and then provide an annual inspection of each building, equipping new university sites as development continues to 2020.

"Chubb is responsive and easy to work with, its engineers specified and installed the equipment quickly and efficiently with no problems, despite the strict time constraints due to the deadline opening of the campus to students," Moremon concluded.
