Stratton Air National Guard
When the storage demand at the Stratton Air National Guard Base Hazmat building was increased to include combustible and flammable liquids, Douglas Nadeau, the President of RAN Fire Protection Engineering, P.C., was given the task of upgrading the sprinkler system.
The retrofit design included an increase in hydraulic demand and the addition of in-rack sprinklers. RAN’s design process included analyzing Local and State Building Codes, NFPA standards, and Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC) to determine the most stringent requirements. RAN Fire Protection Engineering performed consulting services for fire protection systems at the Stratton Air National Guard Base. RAN engineers designed sprinkler and high expansion suppression systems for Hangers 2, 7, and 8. A new fire pump house was also designed on this project. The project scope included a code analysis to verify compliance with NFPA standards building codes and ETL’s.
The sprinkler system in the Air National Storage Area needed to be updated. RAN Fire Protection Engineering, PC was retained to provide consulting services for the design modifications of the sprinkler system. Since the storage area is on a military base, all of the designs needed to be compliant with the UFC criteria.
