The existing fire alarm at the Science & Engineering Office building is non-compliant. In addition, this fire alarm system is no longer supported by the industry and presents a challenge in finding replacement parts. The project includes replacing the fire alarm system as well as removal of the old system. The existing building fire alarm system is to remain in place and operational until the new system is fully installed, commissioned and accepted by the University. All existing architectural finishes impacted by the removal of the existing fire alarm equipment, devices, conduit, wiring, boxes, etc., shall be restored/repaired to match surrounding conditions.
Furnish and install fire alarm initiation and notification devices and equipment. All existing architectural finishes impacted by the installation of new fire alarm equipment, devices, conduit wiring, boxes, etc. shall be restored / repaired to match surrounding conditions. Numerous areas in the building will require working above standard 8-0. New UIC Fire Alarm Standards will be in place and need to be executed for this project.
This Project is located at: Science & Engineering Offices, 851 South Morgan St, Chicago IL
