DEM Fire provides comprehensive fire protection and essential services, with clients including shopping centres, schools, apartment buildings… and our leading national arts organisations.
“They always know what needs to be done. I’ve found their professionalism; their communication and job management has always been exceptional.”
Opera Australia is globally recognised as one of Australia’s leading performing arts companies.
It regularly stages operas at its two home venues: the Sydney Opera House and Arts Centre Melbourne. And it has a packed touring schedule which sees it performing nationally at diverse and eclectic locations including basketball courts and beaches.
Opera Australia astoundingly, presents more than 600 performances every year. And just like them, DEM Fire is committed to hard work, professionalism and a stellar performance.
DEM Fire has been providing services to Opera Australia for a decade across two locations in Sydney: its head office in Surry Hills and a storage facility in Alexandria.
The DEM Fire team regularly service and monitor all fire and safety equipment including sprinkler systems, fire extinguishers and pumps.
“We have a full schedule in place which we revise every couple of years,” advises Neal. “They do a monthly check on our sprinkler systems, an annual check of pipe work and they regularly monitor all other equipment such as smoke alarms, fire blankets and extinguishers.”
Neal first considered moving to DEM Fire based on the recommendation of a colleague – and he’s stayed with DEM for several reasons.
“I met with Gary and Tom Marshall, who then tendered for the job,” Neal explains. “I went with them based on competitive pricing and because they seemed very knowledgeable. I’ve stayed with them because of their expertise, great communication and quality of work.”
“I’ve found all the staff to be very professional in everything from how they dress to most importantly, how they do the job. They also supply everything I need, and all work complies with local council and Australian safety codes.”
One area Neal is particularly impressed with in addition to the quality of work, is the ease of communication.
He has been impressed too with the level of technology across the organisation, which the team uses when testing all fire and safety equipment.
DEM Fire manages every aspect of fire and essential services design and delivery including emergency, detection and protection systems, fire safety equipment, site auditing, flow testing and risk assessment.
And we conduct Annual Fire Safety Certification with our skilled team of Certified Fire Safety Practitioners.
