Fire Wall Placement

<- last   home   next ->

 

 

The final concrete panel for the building’s fire wall is put into position here by the crane operator.   The fire wall essentially creates a fire-safe barrier between the western and eastern segments of the new collection vault addition.  With the deployment of the fire wall and the strategic choice to not employ common walls between collection vaults, the collection storage capacity of the building is divided into three separate fire-safe modules, further reducing the potential for catastrophic collection loss in the building in case of a fire event.
