Washington University School of Medicine – Olin Dorm Fire Protection

Olin Residence Hall, at Washington University in St. Louis’ School of Medicine Campus, an eleven story high rise building constructed in 1954, was originally a Class III standpipe system with a fire pump but was not sprinklered. McClure designed a wet pipe sprinkler system for the residence floors that included a prefabricated metal soffit to conceal the piping with the exposed structure construction. A replacement fire pump, and fire pump controller connected to a standby generator was designed to replace the original system with an electrical tap ahead of the building main breaker. A new Class I standpipe with valves located within the exit stairwell for fire personal safety was designed to replace the original standpipe that was located in the building corridors.
