The President of RAN Fire Protection Engineering provided lead fire protection engineering services for the total interior and exterior renovation of the 14 story high-rise at 470 Atlantic Avenue in Boston, Massachusetts.
The site of Independence Wharf is in the location of the Boston Tea Party, which integrates the rich history of the city. The renovated building addressed both the innovations of 21st Century Boston and the historic significance of the wharf. The scope of the work involved the design of the base building fire protection systems to provide for the future tenant fit out demands. The fire protection system design included a new fire pump along with base building sprinkler/standpipe system distribution.
