The latest appointment is FDS’ third on the 31 acre site, having previously provided installation of mechanical smoke ventilation systems for a number of other phases. In addition, FDS has been enlisted to undertake ongoing maintenance work to the buildings’ smoke ventilation systems.

Nick Waterfield, Managing Director at FDS, said: “We’re delighted to have been appointed to the third phase of the Kings Park project. As in the previous stages, our experience and expertise will allow us to achieve a workable solution through the use of a value engineered approach.”

FDS is expected to complete work for this phase in December 2014.
