Project Name: Marriott Beachplace Towers
Location: 21 South Ft. Lauderdale Beach Blvd. Fort Lauderdale, FL 33316
Project Type: Highrise Hotel/Condo Timeshare with Retail Podium
Synopsis: Diesel fire pump engine failure leaves Marriott property at risk and facing lengthy fire-watch due to extended lead times on replacement equipment.
Details: Beachplace Tower’s obsolete Reddy Buffaloes fire pump was rendered inoperable due to catastrophic diesel fire pump engine failure. Marriott’s experienced Global Fire Safety team knew they could count on RentFirePumps.com to deliver results.
Solution: A mobile temporary fire pump solution was quickly delivered and installed. A flow test was performed at the most remote standpipe to confirm that the minimum 100psi requirement was being met. RentFirePump.com’s 750 GPM @ 175 PSI easily met this requirement delivering over 120 PSI and ensuring that the design density requirements of the building’s most remote fire sprinkler system(s) were met.
Temporary Fire Pump: Diesel 750 GPM @ 175 PSI – FP Controller (110 v) – Jockey Pump – JP Controller – Test Header –Discharge – Pressure relief valve (Dial in the required pressure) – Day Tank – Low Fuel Alarm
