Charles F. Green Homes, Fire Alarm System Upgrade

Bridgeport, CT

ho chgreen

This project involved the complete removal and replacement of the fire alarm systems for five high-rise residential towers and one administration building for the Bridgeport Housing Authority. No electronic and very minimal hard copy building plans were available for background creation. Aztech had to be creative in developing base building drawings and contract documents

Devices were selected with protective coverings to address the concern of vandalism. Maintaining a code compliant system that could stand up to the potentially difficult environment was no easy undertaking especially when it came to the routing of the fire alarm conductor and conduit through concrete buildings. Close coordination with the owner, contractor and Authority Having Jurisdiction helped overcome these challenges.

Cost estimates were performed during the design stages so that the Housing Authority could make sure that the project stayed within their budget.
