Case Study Achmea Apeldoorn

Background

Centraal Beheer Achmea (formerly Centraal Beheer) is one of the largest Dutch insurance companies and part of the Achmea Group. The company is particularly known for its catchy and most humorous commercials and of course the phrase ”Just call Apeldoorn”. Centraal Beheer was formerly located in the center of Apeldoorn but it moved after some time to Apeldoorn South. The company has grown in the last few years from 1800 to 4800 employees and created the demand for a new work environment. This has become the new campus in Apeldoorn. An ultra-modern environment where it is good to stay.

The project

Each building on campus has an autonomous evacuation system which is controlled from the local fire alarm. There is not chosen for evacuation panels per building in this project, because the individual buildings do not have their own reception.
From the main reception the individual buildings are controlled for total evacuation per building. The local fire alarm, however, can evacuate the system per zone. It is also possible to give evacuation instructions with a microphone to each of the buildings or to all buildings at the same time, a so-called total evacuation.
Given the large distances on campus, the cabling could cause problems for data and audio. Together with the client, it was decided to opt for a glass network. It was decided for this concept to use a star-shaped network for audio and data.
In mid-2011, the first system got commissioned and now all systems are operational. Everyone is happy with the quality delivered. Technically, we are very pleased with the solution, because the audio quality is superb thanks to the glass technology.

Our client

In 2010, our company received the order for the delivery and commissioning of the evacuation systems of the Forest- and Logistics Building from the company Croon Electrostatic Technique. In 2011 our company received the orders for the other buildings. Together with Croon we thought about a way to test the speaker wiring. We then delivered our first test case to test the speaker wiring of the evacuation systems at commissioning. With this test, the probabilities of failure decreased significantly.
