Eisenhower Johnson Memorial Tunnel (EJMT)
The Eisenhower Johnson Memorial Tunnel Fixed Fire Suppression System project is a $20,000,000 fire protection project that required fire protection engineering for the performance-based design of the system. The fire suppression system is activated by a linear heat detection system which in turn activates the fire suppression system, protecting two 2-mile long tunnels. Our design role in the Fire Protection Engineering of the project included fire modeling, live-fire testing, and design of the fire protection system. The installation was complete in late September with testing and commissioning of the system in October and completion in late November, 2015.
