Annisquam Yacht Club Gloucester, MA is situated on the Essex Bay end of the Annisquam River. The building is literally out over the water connected to land only by a two hundred foot walk way. A valve house was constructed on the main land to enclose our back flow preventer, dry pipe valves and a corrosion inhibiting system. The corrosion inhibiting system consists of a Nitrogen generator, nitrogen storage tank, auto purge systems for each zone and a nitrogen purity tester. A dry sprinkler system air compressor is provided to initially fill the sprinkler systems within 30 minutes as required by NFPA 13. Over a two week period the air is automatically purged and replaced with nitrogen.

Hamilton Hall in Salem MA is widely recognized as one of the most important Federal buildings in America. In the early 1800s, the Federalists and Jeffersonian Republicans were constantly pitted against one another. Each party was determined to have a meeting place, which led to the construction of Hamilton Hall by the Federalists. It was designed in 1805 by the famous architect and master woodcarver, Samuel McIntire. For over two hundred years, Hamilton Hall has hosted many outstanding social and cultural events including weddings, lectures, and dinners for heads of state. Hamilton Hall was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1970. We worked closely with the Owner and Architect to produce a design and installation that preserves the beauty of this historic building.
