Fire Alarm Replacement

This project was for the complete replacement of the existing fire alarm system with a new addressable multiplex fire alarm system in the Gerald R. Ford Federal Building for the US General Services Administration.  The building will be fully occupied for the duration of the project.  The building is 7 stories tall with two basement levels and a penthouse.  The new system was designed for all the existing systems to remain independent and fully operational until the new system is accepted.  Demolition of the existing system will follow along with the patching of walls, floors, and ceilings with matching finishes as well as patching of any abandoned penetrations.  Abatement of asbestos fireproofing is included as required to facilitate the installation of the system.  The project also includes providing power to the new fire alarm system.
