II. Narrative Section 
Project Justification (Essay)
Project Description: Upgrades to the existing fire alarm system for the Belrose Building to meet current fire and ADA codes.
Project Justification: This building is equipped with an automatic fire detection and alarm system, but the system is antiquated. It is recommended that the fire detection and alarm system be upgraded. When completed, the new system will provide visual, as well as audible notification, in accordance with ADA requirements.
Project Background Information: Buildings and Grounds fire contractor Siemens on Quarterly inspection on 2-21-2012 reported. PULL STATIONS WITH NOTE '1' HAVE NO GLASS BARS FOR TAMPER EVIDENCE. NEED REPLACEMENT. RECALL WAS NOT PROGRAMMED INTO ELEVATORS ON PROPERTY, THERE ARE MODULES THAT ARE INSTALLED BUT NOT WIRED. HORN STROBE APPLIANCE AT 2ND FLOOR HALLWAY BY VOCATIONAL TESTING NEEDS REPLACEMENT. EDWARDS MODEL 881D-AW WE FOUND NO HVAC SHUTDOWN THROUGH BUILDING AND A PAD 3 WHICH CONTROLS NOTIFICATION IN THE 628 TWO STORY BUILDING IS NOT LISTED FOR USE WITH THE EST QUICK START PANEL OR THE FIELD DEVICES IT CONTROLS (THIS PANEL NEEDS TO BE INDFEPENDENTLY RESET IN ORDER TO CLEAR AN ALARM UNACCEPTABLE). AUDIO COVERAGE THOUGHOUT BUILDING IS UNACCEPTABLE AND NEEDS TO BE ENGINEERED PER STATE N.R.S. SIEMENS STRONGLY RECOMMEDS TO CORRECT THESE ISSUES IMMEDIATELY. THIS REPORT WAS SENT TO THE BUILDING & GROUNDS DEPARTMENT It was also noted that: Siemens found many discrepancy on our inspection that are code violations which we at Siemens consider a public safety hazard. Currently the audio coverage is unacceptable as well as having no HVAC Shutdown on any these units. During our audio inspection most of your 2nd floor tenants could not hear the alarm going off. Siemens strongly recommends you to contact the State Fire Marshal and Building Department to get a solution to this issue.
