Dry Standpipe Project Completed

Dry Stand Pipe

The dry standpipe project that has been ongoing over the last 2 months has finally been completed and our landscaping crew has done a great job and hiding some of the exposed piping near the side entrance of the building. This project started after it was found that the original and aging dry standpipe that extends under the building had some leaks and did not fully pass the requirements by the fire department. With the recent fires at our neighbors Chateau Waikiki last week and Marco Polo last year it comforting to have a sprinkler system and up to date dry standpipe here at the Windsor.

Note: The standpipe extends into the building to supply fire fighting water to the interior of the structure via hose outlets, often located between each pair of floors in stairwells in high rise buildings. Dry standpipes are not filled with water until needed in fire fighting.
