Princeton Engineering Services (PES) has been retained to help install a new fire suppression in the unsuppressed “Patient Treatment Area” wing of the Health Services Building at the New Lisbon Developmental Center Complex. The new suppression system will tie into the existing building fire alarm system that runs through the entire complex.
The Developmental Center was founded in 1914 on a 1,896 acre tract of land and became a state training institutuion in 1916. It has provided a comprehensive system of care for women and men with intellectual and developmental disabilities since 1977. It has a census of approximately 350 residents who live in various cottages on site.
The Health Services Building is a one story structure with a basement at approximately 24,903 sq. ft. The building is used primarily to house the facility’s most medically fragile consumers.
The scope of work for this project includes performing hydrant tests and hydraulic calculations, extending the existing systems, alarms/ monitoring/controls, fire detectiobn system integration, sprinkler systems control, equipment tests, and upgrading the existing fire detection system.
