Indiana Zeta (DePauw) Chapter House Sprinkler System Sparks Award For Conractor


Scroll_News_DePauwFLORA, INDIANA — For the second year in a row, Brenneco Fire Protection has won an Award of Excellence from Associated Builders and Contractors Inc., a respected professional construction trade association dedicated to the Merit Shop philosophy and to the free trade enterprise system.

Brenneco Fire Protection won for its 2011 Phi Delta Theta Fraternity house project at Depauw University in Greencastle, Indiana. The 18,440-square-foot historical home was built in the late 1920s, when construction didn’t account for things like sprinkler systems. Brenneco’s system installation, which included 188 sprinkler heads and six different head types, was part of a major renovation project to keep the house safe and comfortable for its residents.

“The biggest impact of this project for Phi Delta Theta is safeguarding its students and the institution from the threat of a fire,” Eric Flora, owner of Brenneco Fire Protection, says. “This project required a high level of experience and communication. We were able to fulfill those needs in a timely manner so that the historical Phi Delta Theta house and its incoming students would be safe.”

The Phi Delta Theta building’s general contractor, C.F. Jones Group in Lebanon, Indiana, and owner had very specific aesthetic requirements to maintain the integrity of the historic structure, and its modern sprinkler system had to accommodate those requirements. Brenneco Fire Protection’s experience handling “difficult,” labor-intensive projects helped make this project a success for Phi Delta Theta.

The 2012 Merit Shop Awards Gala recognizing all Indiana chapter ABC winners will be held on Sept. 25.
