All fabricated pipe is now being installed at the school’s Mercer Hall in Riverside, Rhode Island. The standpipe will distribute water flow from the underground feed to the mains pipe on each floor of the building. The mains will provide water distribution to hallways, and connecting pipes for classrooms and the labs.

The mains piping installed on each floor to providing sprinkler coverage for the hallways. Connecting pipe off of the mains goes into classrooms and labs to provide continued sprinkler coverage. To do this, holes get drilled for the pipe. In this case, due to asbestos in the wall, the area is sealed off for abatement during drilling. The holes are then lined with sheet metal to prevent any contamination of water flow.
