Google – YouTube Lobby 75 9th Avenue, New York

Google is an American multinational technology company founded in 1998 by Stanford Univserity PhD students, Larry Page and Sergey Brin.  The company specializes in Internet-related services and products and is one of the most used online search engines today.

In 2006, Google moved into about 300,000 square feet of office space in New York City, at 111 Eighth Avenue and due to their growing employees in early 2014 Google expanded their offices to 75 9th Avenue.  The office was designed and built specially for Google and houses its largest advertising sales team.  The New York headquarters includes a game room, micro-kitchens, and a video game area.

Par Fire Protection, a division of The Par Group, cut and capped existing branch piping for demolition and carting. The Fire Protection division also installed 1 new concealed head and 4 new upright heads with associated branch piping and new connections to the existing main.

We include to relocate 2 concealed heads, 1 upright head and to plug 1 existing head.

Concealed sprinkler head stands high in the ceiling and has a flat cover plate that is level to the ceiling. The cover plate drops from the unit when the temperature reaches around 136 degrees Fahrenheit. When the heat sensitive plate is activated the water is dispersed horizontally across the room.  Concealed sprinkler heads provide a cosmetically appealing alternative to traditional pendant sprinklers while still providing a fire safety measure for the property and are great for commercial properties, office spaces, or residential buildings.

Upright sprinkler heads are automatic sprinklers of the frangible bulb type. These standard-quick response sprinklers produce a semicircular water distribution pattern below the deflector.  Sprinkler and fire protection work completed as per drawings.
