The Ministry of Finance is responsible for ensuring best use of federal government resources through effective financial management and implementation of fiscal policies. It comprises fourteen departments and employs hundreds of staff.

A need was highlighted to upgrade the building's existing fire detection system whilst causing no disruption to the hundreds of workers who occupy the building. The project to upgrade the building's fire detection system was awarded to Telectron, who have operated in the UAE for 35 years. Telectron worked in shifts so not to interfere with the day to day activity of the Ministry.

The new fire detection system provides comprehensive protection over all ten floors of the Ministry's headquarters and comprises approximately 750 Apollo XP95 devices arranged over seven loops. The system is controlled using Advanced Electronics control panels and it interfaces with critical equipment such as lifts, air conditioning and pressurised fans.
