Shaw Building Group to replace Emergency Warning and Intercommunication System (EWIS) at Parliament House
Shaw Building Group has undertaken many projects at Parliament House and has recently been selected to replace the Emergency Warning and Intercommunication System (EWIS). The EWIS is an essential service for the building, providing integrated, system-wide monitoring and control of the building’s fire and emergency control system as well as supporting various field devices and security functions.
The project is technically complex with multiple levels of redundancy to ensure continuous operation in all circumstances. While the existing EWIS is functioning perfectly, it was installed when the building was first completed in 1988, and was upgraded in 2000. It has therefore reached the end of its operational life.
