Open Road Grill & Icehouse: Fire Alarm System

High Tech > Specialty Systems

The Open Road Grill & Icehouse project included the fire alarm installation consisting of six alarm zones and four sprinkler zones - of which three are dry pipe systems.

J.E. Richards assisted with the layout of 36 notification appliances and 38 Fire Alarm addressable initiating devices to avoid conflicts with architectural features of the building. The project also included coordination with the mechanical contractor for interfacing with multiple kitchen hoods for alarm activation, gas shut off and electrical and hood fan shut down. The Fire Alarm submittals were collaborated with our Fire Alarm vendor to obtain approval from the Fairfax plan review office and the Fairfax inspection division.

“The vintage-brick facade, warehouse-style building contains three vastly different dining concepts: Open Road Grill & Icehouse, The Italian Market & Deli, and Trio Grill, whose design is a collaboration of two renowned local architectural design firms - HapstakDemetriou+ Architects and Nicholas Lucarelli Architects."
