Retracom Modular Fire Rated Switchrooms

Retracom recently completed the supply and install of an innovative fire rated switch room for UGL Engineering as part of a contract to upgrade of the Pittsworth Water Reclamation facilities for Toowoomba Regional Council. The specification of the switch room building required a 1 hour FRL (fire rated level) in accord with AS1530.4 to address the site ignition and flammability hazards. Typically this has been achieved by onsite construction in bricks and mortar. A fire engineer was engaged to integrate various proprietary FRL systems together in a single modular building certified as an alternate solution in compliance with building code. Factory fabrication enabled better build quality control and allowed us to work closely with UGL during the custom design process. The transportability of the modules further provided the flexibility of where the final switchgear fitout occurs. Our contract also included a combined amenities and control room building that is well suited to the clean lines and hygienic finish provided by sandwich panel. Retracom’s scope of works extended to site installation whereafter UGL Engineering fitted out the switch gear insitu.
