Featured RCI Fire Protection Projects
Condominium Sprinkler Install
Optima Camelview Village is an upscale condominium community located on 13 acres in Scottsdale. This fire protection project involved nine 7-story & 2 6-story residential buildings with over 700 individual units - as well as a 500,000 sqft below grade parking garage.
We installed a standpipe system fed by a fire pump with an intricate piping system. We used plastic piping for the residential area and steel pipe for the garage & retail areas.
Arizona State University ISTB 4
Complex Fire System Design
Opened in May 2012, the Interdisciplinary Science and Technology Building is one of the most innovative research buildings on the Tempe campus. This 300,000 sqft, 8-story building incorporates various lab spaces, clean rooms, offices, and an auditorium.
This innovative building design required a complex fire system design due to the laboratory fire rating requirements. We started working with ASU during the conceptual design phase, BIM coordination during construction, and installed a fire pump, pressure reducing valves, and pre-action systems for sensitive areas.
Phoenix City Hall
Sprinkler Retrofit in Busy Government Building
Phoenix City Hall rises 20 floors and 368 feet above downtown Phoenix, and houses some of the city's high-level leaders - whose work can't be put on hold.
RCI installed new fire sprinkler systems floor-by-floor, replacing the old systems as we went. All work was performed at night so work could continue and tenants were not disturbed.
Phoenix Art Museum
Pre-action Fire Systems for Priceless Art
You may not know this, but the Phoenix Art Museum is the largest art museum in the southwestern United States housing 19,000 works from around the world in its permanent collection. With so much valuable art of various mediums, special care must be taken to protect not only from fire damage, but water damage from fire-fighting efforts.
We've replaced 3 pre-action fire systems to date and are working to replace the remaining systems in phases.
