If you’re unfamiliar with the museum, it is a natural history museum in London. It is part of University College London (UCL) and is named after Robert Grant, a zoology and comparative anatomy professor who founded the museum in 1827 as a teaching collection.
The museum contains over 68,000 specimens, covering various animals, from insects to whales. So the fire alarm system within this building has been designed with artefact preservation and visitor protection in mind. The collection includes extinct species, such as the dodo, as well as rare and endangered animals. The specimens are displayed in glass jars and cases, allowing visitors to see the intricate details of the animals up close – something we love to take in when we conduct fire alarm maintenance visits.
In addition to the permanent collection, the Grant Museum also hosts temporary exhibitions, talks, and events. It is open to the public and is free to visit, and welcomes thousands of visitors each year, making it especially important that its fire alarms are well-maintained and regularly tested.
We could not be prouder of our long-term partnership with UCL as we provide fire alarm system design, installation and maintenance across their campuses and cover more than 160 buildings.
