 Case Studies

 
  • ​Known for offering big comfort and style, SpringHill Suites Dallas Downtown/West End delivers on the motto “Everything is bigger in Texas.” Located in the historic west end of downtown Dallas, the 10-story hotel features 148 guest rooms with a sophisticated and contemporary cowboy ambiance. The hotel recently needed a new fire system panel, which in turn required the entire fire system to be brought up to current code.​

  • The Augustana Apartments is a 12-story residential building in Minneapolis, MN, managed by Augustana Care. The management company knows having a reliable fire alarm system is a must, particularly within a facility which houses primarily elderly and disabled persons. Beyond fire, management also knew the ability to effectively communicate information and clear instructions pertaining to a variety of possible threats was also a necessity to safeguard the lives of residents.
  • When Sledd Co. made a 100,000 square-foot, $15 million addition to an already enormous multi-purpose storage facility, the convenience-store distributor knew it would have its hands full finding fire protection that could meet all of its needs. The Wheeling, West Virginia-based company is a growing business that has nearly doubled its workforce over the last decade and now delivers to customers in its home state as well as Pennsylvania, Ohio, Virginia, Maryland and Kentucky.

  • ​Port Canaveral has been home to many historically signifi cant battles. It’s considered one of the world’s fastest growing ports, and is at the epicenter of international space exploration. To showcase local triumphs from present and past, the Canaveral Port Authority built a new 23,000 square-foot, seven-story visitor center, aptly called the Exploration Tower. Considering its more than 350 daily visitors, plus weekly events of more than 1,000 guests, the safety of its patrons is of paramount concern.

  • ​When Independent School District (ISD) 196 needed to replace its aging, problematic fi re alarm systems across the 110-square-mile district, it had two main criteria to help keep its 28,000 students as safe as possible: a non-proprietary system capable of being installed, tested and maintained by any certifi ed installer, and the ability to pinpoint the location of alarms to speed the response of fi rst responders.

  • ​Two main hubs for servicing Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority’s (SEPTA) 1,545 buses, 159 rail trolleys and 38 trackless trolleys required a large-capacity, code-compliant fi re alarm with the sophistication to control various ancillary systems – all within tight budgetary parameters.
