I'm working on an 1880's masonry four story historic building that currently has no fire sprinkler system. We're looking to retrofit a fire sprinkler system and we're looking into any and all ideas for concealing the pipe but keeping the historic charm.
This building itself has concrete beams with 'tin' ceilings in-between. We're considering building down false beams, furring out entire walls, and potentially soffits to help conceal pipe.
For those who have complete sprinkler retrofit designs for historic buildings, what tips or methods have you used to make your projects successful?
