Civic

New Mexico Supreme Court Fire Suppression Installation, Santa Fe NM

Client: New Mexico Supreme Court

Scope: One of several renovation projects completed for this downtown Santa Fe historic facility. To adequately protect the building and its contents at a reasonable installation cost, M&E determined three types of sprinkler systems were required: a wet pipe system for most of the building; a gas type for areas where water would irreparably damage the contents of the space, the server room and book reserve area; and a pre-action dry type system designed to be used in areas where accidental release would cause extensive damage for the library and library storage areas. The installation was difficult due to minimal available space for pipe routing and the need to preserve surface finishes.
