Zari Consulting Group recently completed fire protection engineering and building code consulting services for the new high-rise residential Blanc development located at 1080 Sutter Street in the heart of San Francisco.

The fire sprinkler system also contains a large water storage tank, should the municipal system have problems. The fire alarm is a fully addressable system, with voice evacuation, corridor smoke detection, and waterflow. The smoke control system is a negative corridor pressurization system with positively pressurized, two-hour rated exit enclosures.
