A fire broke out in Al Bustan residential tower on August 14, 2005 at 04.43AM. The fire brought damages to the front side of the building that affected 20 floors and dozens of flats. Firefighters efforts prevented spreading the fire to nearby buildings with zero human casualties. The Civil Defense and fire-fighters efforts who responded and managed the fire in a professional and dedicated manner is highly regarded and appreciated.
The landlord ordered an immediate relief to tenants by providing accommodation alternatives. Once the fire site was cleared by Civil Defence after collecting evidence, and assessing damages, we were assigned the task of bringing the air conditioning system back to normal in no time.
The fire, heat, and smoke affected the air conditioning systems which required multiple replacements and repair works preceded by extensive check-ups. The scope of our work included replacing Fan Coil Units (FCU), replacement and repairing of air-duct and air outlets, repairing of electrical connections of air conditioning systems, replacement of thermostats, fixing and replacing air conditioning drain, re-insulation of chilled water system pipes, in addition to testing the entire air conditioning system in the building.
Within a few months, the building was re-occupied.
