The first panel of experts presented their ideas at today’s High Challenge Warehouse Workshop as part of the Fire Protection Research Foundation’s SUPDET 2010.

Seven engineering firms took the challenge to design fire protection in a high challenge warehouse where the local fire chief has made it clear that no interior fire fighting will be attempted to achieve final fire extinguishment. Robots, foam and water mist were some of the concepts mentioned as the first panel presented their ideas. The first group to present today included Schirmer Engineering, Rolf Jensen and Associates and FPI Consortium.

Panel Panelists Garner Palenske and Dan O'Connor from Schirmer, Dick Bukowski from Rolf Jensen and Associates, and Warde Comeaux of the FPI Consortium discuss ideas on how to protect the high challenge warehouse.

The case was presented by Richard Gallagher of Zurich Services Corporation.
Check back soon to see the presentations.
