The overarching objective in this project was to quickly replace a non-functioning and antiquated fire alarm system to satisfy Montgomery County’s life safety mandate in this two-tower, 13-story residential condominium complex with three-level parking garage.

As Owner’s Representative, Rhino conducted a conditions and life cycle assessment of the antiquated fire alarm since spare parts were no longer available, provided life safety code consulting, devised and negotiated a phased approach within the County time frame mandate and Owner’s financial limitations/budget, vetted vendor proposals, provided construction project management as well as commissioning and witness testing. An challenge was coordinating / obtaining access to individual units for construction as well as minimizing disruption to residents and maintaining good communication among all parties (i.e., Owner, Property Manager, and condo owners/occupants).
