Red Arrow New alarm systems enhance safety throughout the building

The Albert Street Education Centre received some upgrades during Covid.

Roch Béland is the chief custodian at the site and says that the renovations have gone smoothly. “Almost all (99%) of the work is done,” he confirms.

Installing a new fire alarm was the first thing done at 440 Albert Street. This took place from February 2021 to September 2021. The smoke detectors, horns, and pull stations were replaced with new ones, with “all new wiring” being installed.

Electrical upgrades were made from February 2021 to December 2021. Aging electrical switching equipment was replaced. Sixty-four electrical panels were replaced in the building.

Room numbers were changed at the request of the fire department, and the building suddenly acquired a fourth floor! OCENET’s Ottawa International Students Program (OISP) office became Room C406 (formerly C315). The Young People’s Language School (YPLS) is in Room 236, and the Ottawa International Projects & Exchanges (OIPE) office is in Room 214.

The PA system was also replaced and new house phones were placed in designated areas. This work was done from June 2021 to February 2022 and some finishing upgrades will continue as needed to improve the safety and functionality of 440 Albert St.
