Fire protection – next generation
With more than 1,000 employees, EL:CON is one of the largest providers of electrical installations in Denmark. The company offers a comprehensive range of solutions for the commercial and residential sectors, from preventive fire protection to video surveillance.
The BaseCamp residential complex in Lyngby is architecturally exciting as well as sustainable, brings several generations together under one roof and uses state-of-the-art fire protection.
Urban & sustainable living
EL:CON thus had exactly the full-service competence that was required for BaseCamp's new spectacular student housing complex in Lyngby - the building services company was commissioned with all electrical installations. With a flexible, intergenerational concept, the project enables sustainable living not only for students, but also for people of all ages. Photovoltaic modules and a special façade insulation are essential elements of the green building concept.

Integral Mobile: informed at all times
For fire protection, EL:CON realised an integrated system consisting of one component each for the common area and for monitoring the flats. "In total, more than 2,000 fully automatic fire detectors are installed in the apartment complex. In addition, we also use Integral Mobile," says project manager Flemming Jespersen, who works as technical division manager at EL:CON. Jespersen and the two building technicians on site receive automatic notification of any incident. This means that there is immediate information about every event.
Robust & smart
The system also includes numerous fire controls. In the event of a fire, the lifts move to the ground floor, the ventilation systems are shut down and the photovoltaic system is deactivated. These automatic processes provide an additional important safety factor. Jespersen knows the various fire alarm systems on the market very well - he uses Schrack Seconet's solutions out of conviction.
For the protection of people and values.
