JAMES MONROE ELEMENTARY
Client: LAN Associates
RAN Fire Protection Engineering has designed the complete fire protection system for the James Monroe Elementary School. Numerous architectural features within the building posed challenges to develop adequate sprinkler protection. RAN was able to use their extensive knowledge in fire dynamics to develop a coordinated layout that not only blended in with the building’s architectural features, but also reduced the sprinkler demand to avoid the installation of a costly fire pump.
