Dwight-D-Eisenhower-ArmyThe U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Mobile District, needed to replace the fire alarm systems at seven buildings at the Dwight D.

Each of the new systems had to be integrated with the new fire alarm and mass notification system in Building 300. The buildings included:

  • Building 297: medical records, one-story, 5,100 SF
  • Building 298: hyperbaric and wound care, one-story, 1,650 SF

  • Building 301: family medicine, one-story, 26,733 SF
  • Building 302: maintenance shop, one-story, 5,476 SF
