Spread over 18.5 acres, Jio World Centre (JWC) is a multifaceted development where people will get together, to appreciate art, to exchange ideas, to celebrate culture, and to soak in the heritage and vibrancy of our great city. The JWC is a stunning new landmark for India, as well as a prime location for business, leisure, entertainment, and retail in the prestigious precinct of Bandra-Kurla Complex in Mumbai. JWC fulfills the vision of the promoters, providing global platforms and opportunities to everyone, in anticipation of India’s next decade of growth. This project is ahead of its curve and has been developed with an international design vocabulary while honoring the culture and spirit of India.

A project by Reliance Industries, JWC showcases pioneer technology, safety, and digital innovation, and offers exceptional experiences such as India’s first 5G-enabled digital infrastructure with uninterrupted data, virtual and hybrid events, and unparalleled online cultural experiences.

Fire Safety Products for buildings from SE Controls


Enabling client’s and architect’s vision to have state-of-the-art, perimeter façade smoke ventilation systems, using Automatic Opening Vents (AOV) along with India’s first glass façade Automatic Fireman Access Doors (A.FMAD).


SE Controls was enlisted to design the system from the correct product fit to complex cable laying strategy, including triple height areas, based on OS2 Controllers and SECO Manual Control Point locations as directed by the architect and MEP consultants mapped to the fire strategy. Timely supplies for a project of this scale are always a challenge but are met with on-time deliveries. Complete installation up to commissioning was commissioned out to our trained and specialist ‘Approved Installer’, who worked along with the project’s curtain wall fabricator and MEP contractors to fulfill this vision. The solution was to provide actuators that fit the purpose and design intent of perimeter façade smoke ventilation to the Free Area Requirements given to us, with compatible control systems to enable the opening of these AOVs and Automatic Fire Man Access Doors on the building envelope.

All our actuators are tested to the stringent code of EN12101-02 and compatible OS2 Controls with up to 72hours of battery back-up as per EN12101-10, including SECO Manual Control Points which relay the system status to each MCP, tested to EN12101-10. India, at this stage, does not have a code of practice for this system. We ensured the system was designed, to the extent possible, to meet with BS7346-8 Code of Practice for planning, design, installation, commissioning, and maintenance of these Smoke Control Systems, for this and other projects we are awarded in the region.

Jio World Centre (JWC) is a multifaceted development

Today JWC, due to the forward-thinking vision of the developer and increasingly stringent norms in fire safety is fully protected with not only ours but other state-of-the-art equipment for firefighting and life safety from active and passive fire prevention and standpoint. This has future-proofed the project for years to come.

As with all systems of this type, there are two key roles:

 To protect escape routes, venting smoke away from them to allow occupants to evacuate the building, also keeping the perimeter of the fire floor relatively smoke-free, ensuring reduced chances of a flashover as well.

 Provide greater access to the firemen, allowing them to tackle the fire more effectively.

For the past 40 years, SE Controls has been at the forefront of the development of innovative control systems that harness sustainable natural elements creating safer, healthier indoor environments. The product range is tested in accordance with the relevant EN12101 harmonised suite of standards for smoke control compliance and designed in accordance with the BS7346-8 Code of Practice for planning, design, installation, commissioning, and maintenance of Smoke Control Systems.


Fire safety is of major importance in any building but especially so in one like JWC, which annually is visited by hundreds of thousands of visitors. The Smoke Clearance System is therefore seen as a life safety system and brings two key areas of benefit:

From a safety point of view
 Keeps fire floor’s perimeter, public escape, and access routes relatively free from smoke.

 Improves visibility within the building allowing the fire service to facilitate operations, and occupants to be able to see better.

 Delays and /or prevent flashovers and full fire development, thereby reducing property damages from a developer’s point of view.

 Reduce the effects of heat on structural components during a fire.


Our communications began from the time the project was awarded to one of India’s leading curtain wall fabricators known to take up such challenging large-scale projects, along with design meetings and brainstorming sessions with the architects, façade consultant, and the client themselves. This system requires multi-disciplinary coordination both off and on-site which was handled by our in-house design team, CX members as well as our ‘Approved Installers’ on-site.


With increasingly complex façade systems being designed in our region today, we must take a step back and see, how to bring a good mix between form and function. Having a good mix will ensure that the most cost-optimized system can be designed and implemented, thereby allowing for large-scale adaptation and acceptance of such advanced systems in all the upcoming projects in our region.
