United States Alliance Fire Protection provides fire protection services to clients in a wide variety of industries. Check out some of our recent work:
Elmhurst Memorial Hospital - Elmhurst, Ill.
United States Alliance Fire Protection installed fire sprinkler systems that included more than 10,000 sprinklers, along with standpipes and fire pumps, at this five-story, 1 million-square-foot hospital complex, which replaces Elmhurst Memorial Hospital's previous campus. We completed the project on time and on budget.
Our designers used three-dimensional modeling to plan the project's mechanical and electrical installations, which helped to coordinate work seamlessly and avoid construction conflicts.
The fire sprinkler system incorporates the International Building Code (IBC)'s seismic standards, making Elmhurst one of the first hospitals in the area to meet these standards. We also installed three underground water storage tanks to meet the IBC's high-rise requirements.
McClurg Court - Chicago, Ill.
United States Alliance Fire Protection recently completed a fire sprinkler system retrofit for McClurg Court, an apartment complex in downtown Chicago. The 1 million-square-foot building is now fully protected with more than 12,000 sprinkler heads.
The retrofit's first phase consisted of installing fire sprinklers in more than 1,000 occupied apartments throughout the building's two 45-story towers. We completed the work in less than six months with minimal disruption to tenants. McClurg Court's management company, RMK Management, praised the performance of our engineers, superintendent, foreman, fitters and managers, and awarded the second phase of the project to us as well.
During the second phase, we retrofitted the building's occupied retail shops, health club, tennis courts, swimming pool and two-story theater, as well as back-of-the-house areas and personal storage lockers.
