The Science and Research One Life Safety Upgrades Project started as a code citation correction project. The State Fire Marshall has allowed the building to remain open on the condition that the code violations are remedied when the building is remodeled. Following the failure of the building’s chilled water system the project scope was expanded. Scopes of work include:

  • Install new stair pressurization system
  • Replace domestic/fire storage tank
  • Install complete fire sprinkler system
  • Replace fire alarm system
  • Modernize the existing elevators
  • General Construction work associated with the above items
  • Asbestos Remediation
  • Minor Life Safety Updates
  • 1,500 KW Generator and associated switch gear to serve S&R1 and S&R 2
  • Replacement of the Chilled Water System
  • Replacement of Air Handling Units
