POLICE BUILDING 269 FIRE ALARM PANEL REHAB/REPLACEMENT
JAMAICA, NEW YORK
The existing fire alarm system at John F. Kennedy International Airport Police Building 269, a 2-story 35,500 SF building, is not functioning properly. The existing fire alarm control panel is a non-addressable, Edwards IRC3 panel, installed in the mid-1990s. The existing fire alarm system initiating and notification devices were recently upgraded and are addressable type devices. These existing addressable type devices do not properly communicate with the existing non-addressable type panel.
The scope of this project was to install a fully functioning, addressable type, state-of-the-art fire alarm system and components that will replace the existing non-addressable type fire alarm control panel and components. Fire Alarm System shall comply with the latest applicable codes, standards, and references for building fire alarm systems. The new system will improve the reliability of the current fire alarm system.
Electrical system design included the replacement of the existing fire alarm system and equipment from a non-addressable type system to an addressable type system, including control panels, sub-panels, smoke detectors, pull stations, horns, strobes, flow switches, tamper switches, and other fire alarm devices pertaining to the fire alarm system.
