Paper Mill Fire Sprinklers

The Gorham Paper Mill in Gorham NH was a complicated project. CFP was asked to connect (through our design) the new massive addition's fire sprinkler system to the existing water supply in a very tight area. The structure posed quite a few problems for the design, since beam spacing and sizing had to take into account, not just the roof, but also cranes, large ductwork, mezzanines, access to immense machines, and cost. Verifying beam locations was challenged to our fear of heights as well. We were thankful for safety harnesses and secure railings. But, compared to the old paper mills we have designed systems for (the ones where you breathed sulphuric acid and could almost watch your tape measure dissolve), this plant was a joy to work in. Please contact Comprehensive Fire Protection for any fire protection project. It doesn't have to be this big a project. We like them small too....

3D Fire Protection Coordination UofA

Comprehensive Fire Protection LLC has the software, the knowledge, and the experience to provide superior 3D coordination for fire sprinkler systems. Recently CFP designed and coordinated fire sprinkler piping for a new classroom building at the University of Alabama. As you can see from the roof lines and exposed framework, this was a challenging coordination project. Also, as anyone who has worked on a school project knows, there was a lot of ductwork and piping to avoid. Ceilings were the product of an inventive architect, which added to the difficulty of combining coordination with code requirements. Please contact CFP if you have a coordination project involving fire sprinkler systems. We can also take your design and insert it into the coordination process....
