United States Postal Service, Merrifield Fire Alarm Upgrade

This existing mail processing center in Merrifield, Virginia, consists of three buildings which total over 650,000 square feet. Though the facility operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, VarcoMac was able to meet the aggressive project schedule for this fire alarm upgrade without causing disruptions to the facility's normal operations. The fire alarm upgrade consisted of the installation and testing of over 1,000 audible and visual devices, 95 manual pull stations, 300 smoke detectors, 75 duct detectors, and 7 control panels which were located in multiple buildings and networked together. The new system required more than 50,000 feet of conduit and over 200,000 feet of fire alarm cable.
