The Batochime, inaugurated in 1995, is the chemistry building located on the campus of the University of Lausanne. It hosts chemists and mathematicians from EPFL, the Faculty of Criminal Sciences from the University of Lausanne and a library.The facades of the building are made of concrete and oak wood. The architecture of the building was largely inspired by shipbuilding and carried out by the architects Guy Collomb, Marc Collomb, Patrick Vogel from the Cube workshop in Lausanne as well as by the architect Ivo Frei from the Niv-O workshop in Lausanne.The emergency lighting concept for this building is based on energy cabinets.We custom made these power cabinets so that we didn’t have to modify the building’s existing wiring. Savings on installation are very important with this kind of concept.High-quality, high-performance luminaires with a precise choice of lenses allowed us not to have to add luminaires in relation to the basic locations and also to have a sufficient quantity of light according to the new standards.
Ho ho ho… Aprotec wishes you a safe Merry Christmas. Here are some important tips from the fire prevention information center to help you have a good holiday season: TIPS FOR CANDLES-always extinguish candles before leaving a room and never leave burning candles unattended.-use LED candles and LED string lights as they are safer than wax candles.– do not light the candles when the tree they garnish is dry.-make sure the candles are firmly attached and straight on your Advent wreath or Christmas tree.-change the candles before they are completely consumed.-pay particular attention to candles when children or pets are present in the room. Never let children play unsupervised near lighted candles.– do not install the tree near heating appliances or a fireplace.-make sure the tree is far enough away from textiles, decorations and any other flammable object.– make sure that the tree is stable on its foot so that it cannot fall over. Fill the stand with water and pour up to two liters of water every day to keep your tree hydrated longer.– take special care when you and your loved ones unwrap gifts. Often the wrapping paper is caught in the flames of the candles.Provide a bucket of water or a fire extinguisher near the Christmas tree.bfb-cipi.ch
