New Burn Building and Mock Fire Station
IMEG provided structural, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering design services for the 3,500-sf, two-story concrete burn building and 1,800-sf four-story training tower. The new training tower and burn building offer a safe setting for fire and emergency personnel to learn and practice high-rise firefighting and rescue operations.
The burn building is used for live fire training in accordance with NFPA 1403, utilizing Class A fires, and the training tower for cold fire training exercises, such as ladders, rappelling, stairs, search and rescue, forced entry, confined space, and aerials.
For the burn building, IMEG provided design for the light and switch in the temperature monitoring system equipment room, receptacles, an electrical panel to power the temperature monitoring system, light, and receptacles, and a dry standpipe for training purposes.
For the training tower, system designs included lights in rooms and stairwells, two receptacles per floor, and a dry standpipe for training purposes.
Working with the commissioning team, IMEG verified the chillers, pumps, DOA unit, chilled beams, and lighting controls were operational and working in time for the building to be up and running.
IMEG also provided structural and MEP design services for the 800-sf outdoor/restroom building.
