This case study concerns The Knickerbocker Hotel, a historical New York City landmark located in the heart of Times Square. This historic property underwent a major renovation involving the complete replacement of the interior of the building. The renovation and reconstitution as an operating hotel meant the dated fire protection system had to be replaced. The project managers chose Mircom Intelligent Fire Solutions to outfit and protect the new hotel.
The successful completion of this project in downtown New York, amidst the hustle and bustle of the city, is a unique achievement for Mircom. The installation of
our state-of-the-art FleX-Net system complements the modernization and renovation of the interior of the Knickerbocker Hotel, while preserving the famed facade of the building. As a result, guests can enjoy twenty-first century security and amenities while continuing to enjoy the historical importance of the
property. This concerted effort to retrofit the existing building not only satisfied our client, but also resulted in a safer, smarter, more livable environment for hotel guests.
