Title:Emergency Fire Suppression System Repair - Elgin Mental Health Center

Agency Reference Number:14-83327
Agency:DHS - Human Services
Purchasing Agency:DHS - Human Services
Purchasing Agency SPO:Christopher Flynn

Status: Closed

Overview

Description and Specifications:
Please be advised that the Department of Human Services has retained Liberty Fire Protection System to repair the fire suppression system at Elgin Mental Health Center.

The recent extreme deep freeze weather conditions have caused freeze ups and damage to facility sprinkler system and hot water system. Areas affected were the Program Building and the connecting corridor that leads to the Hartman Building and Old FTP Building. The areas where the damage occurred had drywall ceilings, limiting staff access. Openings were cut into the drywall to make visual inspections and allow for facility preliminary assessment of the damage. Pipes were broken, fittings cracked, and sprinkler heads popped off. The pipes were still covered with ice and the water is shut off to this area, effectively disabling the sprinkler system and hot water to the Program Building. Currently there is no Fire Suppression system to serve this area other than fire extinguishers and staff conducting fire watch tours. It is critical that repairs are completed immediately because the area houses the patients unit and vocational services programs. The fire suppression system is a “wet” system. This means that the pipes are filled with water all the time. Because of this, the extent of the damage will not be known until the known damage is repaired and the system pressurized. There could be additional damage that will need to be repaired in order to have a functioning system.

For additional information, please refer to the affidavit attached to this Notice.
