J.E. Richards was contracted to replace the 76,000 sq. ft. five story office building’s outdated Fire Alarm system as well as perform a 3 floor tenant fit-out both to be completed in the same time frame as the 3 tenant floor fit-out.
The addressable Fire Alarm system installed was a Fire Lite panel with a remote LCD annunciator with a building layout framed above it. We incorporated 5 NAC panels with 4 circuits each driving 115 notification appliances which were activated by 92 addressable input devices.
The Fire Alarm submittals, drawings and Fire Alarm panel programming were performed in-house and the approval by the City of Alexandria plans review office and the installation inspection by the City of Alexandria Fire Marshal’s office were both obtained in the time frame required.
