Westmead Hospital Upgrade | NSW

Location Sydney, New South Wales
Products FireFinder Plus
Completion Date September 2019


Westmead Hospital is a major tertiary hospital located in Sydney, Australia.

System Summary

Ampac was approached to conduct a future-proofing upgrade, which included upgrading the FireFinder Version 6 Network to a FireFinder Plus Network. The system had 13 Nodes and 51 Loops across the health campus.

Site-Specific Challenges

  • Due to the nature of a working Hospital, all upgrades needed to be completed in one day.
  • Extra campus security was employed for “Fire Watch”

Site-Specific Solutions

With 5 Ampac technicians working across the campus at the same time, we were able to complete the upgrade along with a Fire Engineer inspection of commissioning, in a total of 10 hours.
