Retrofit/Replacement Fire Alarm Systems
A retrofit or replacement of an existing fire alarm system is a very complicated process—one that will involve any number of elements such as:
- Communication with the local Fire Marshal and/or Building Official;
- Permitting the work;
- Analysis of existing fire alarm system infrastructure;
- Analysis of existing building mechanical and fire protection systems;
- Cutover plan or process of transitioning the existing system to the new system;
- Level of disruption to occupants of the building.
Each fire alarm system retrofit or replacement is somewhat unique due to existing building conditions and code requirements. This is where our knowledge of fire alarm codes and experience of working in all types of facilities will benefit our Customer.
Since we consider ourselves a Partner with our Customer, we will typically suggest a meeting with the Local Authorities to discuss and outline our approach for replacement of the existing fire alarm system.
The intent of this meeting is to establish confidence in the Local Authorities with our approach to the replacement process which always results in a much quicker and less complicated approval. We believe this is invaluable to the overall success of each project.
Contact us today and we can schedule a time to discuss your specific situation in detail.
