Retail Distribution Center, Davenport, FL
Shambaugh & Son (Shambaugh) provided fire protection services during the construction of a new distribution center for the world's largest retailer. Shambaugh’s fire protection group combined years of experience with cutting-edge technology in order to equip the facility with industry-leading fire safety systems – which will help the client ensure the safety and well-being of their employees.
In order to expand their e-commerce business, the client needed to construct a new distribution center in central Florida that could serve as a key shipping hub for orders placed online. The 2.2 million square foot facility consists of two adjacent buildings and was designed to house a wide variety of products – from gaming systems and electronics to large home-interior products and exercise equipment – and was expected to generate hundreds of jobs for the region.
Shambaugh installed a wide array of fire protection equipment across more than two million square feet, incorporating stringent National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standards.
During the project, Shambaugh delivered the following:
- 57 sprinkler riser assemblies
- 57 early suppression fast response (ESFR) systems
- Two 300,000-gallon bolted steel ground water storage tanks, per NFPA 22
- 2,500-gallons-per-minute diesel engine fire pump, per NFPA 20
- 2,500-feet-per-minute horizontal electrical fire pump, per NFPA 20
