Commercial Fire and Communications has more than 35 years of experience working with companies in Central and West Florida. Check out some of our case studies below to learn more about the results we’ve been able to deliver to our clients.
Ciminelli Real Estate Corporation
Problem: A CFC customer discovered their existing radio dialers used for monitoring a large portfolio of apartment buildings were no longer supported by the manufacturer. This affected approximately 40 buildings and required immediate attention as all the buildings were occupied.
Solution: Within a period of 10 days we provided an affordable quote for upgrading to cellular monitoring, performed the installation, and set up and programmed the monitoring at properties spread across Central Florida. The CFC team was able to deliver an efficient installation, on budget and on time, for our customer.
Morgan Stanley Tower
Systems Installation and Upgrade
Problem: CFC was contacted by the property manager of a high-rise building in St. Petersburg, Florida to install a new fire alarm panel. The existing panel had become obsolete and replacement parts were no longer available.
Solution: Due to the age of the building and numerous modifications to the original design, CFC’s engineering team drew the building from scratch so that a plan could be submitted to the city. The resulting upgrade to this occupied building went so smoothly that CFC was asked to take over the fire sprinkler inspections, and later did a complete upgrade of the card access system.
Sheraton Sand Key Clearwater Beach Resort Hotel
Fire Alarm Installation
Problem: CFC was recommended to the owner of a large resort on Clearwater Beach to quote a new room smoke alarm system for the entire facility. After an initial walk through, it was discovered that all new wiring needed to be installed in addition to fire alarm installation.
Solution: We were contracted to produce drawings, obtain a permit, rewire and install new smoke detectors in 390 rooms all within a 90 day period. Close coordination with management was required throughout the process, as the hotel stays extremely busy throughout the year. CFC was able to complete the job on schedule, and earned excellent reviews from hotel maintenance staff and management.
North Pinellas County Municipality
Camera System Installation
Problem: CFC was contacted by a municipality in North Pinellas County about a building that had recently been vacated. The City was concerned about vandalism and theft at this property, and asked CFC to provide a quote for a camera system that would record motion around the perimeter of the building.
Solution: The specifications required all images to be archived for a minimum of 30 days, and the system was required to have remote accessibility. After a quick design layout with CFC’s engineering department, we were able to rapidly meet all of the customer’s security requirements and stay within budget.
