Mount Sinai Health System, Fire Protection Assessment and Upgrades

Burns advised Mount Sinai Health System on fire-protection system improvements at Mount Sinai Morningside and Mount Sinai West.

Burns guided two historic, top-ranked hospital campuses through upgrades necessary to comply with state and local fire-protection guidelines. By 2028, the U.S. Centers for Medicaid & Medicare (CMS) will require automatic sprinkler systems across all the country’s high-rise hospitals.

A comprehensive fire-safety master planning process involved documenting existing systems and evaluating:

  • Current capacity of sprinkler-system components
  • Emergency power distribution necessary to support hospital fire pumps
  • Sprinkler system resiliency
  • Overall compliance with state and city requirements

Following the assessment, Mount Sinai Morningside engaged Burns to provide sprinkler coverage for 22,000-square feet of mechanical rooms as well as fire pump upgrades to meet flow and pressure requirements throughout the hospital.

Burns brings highly technical, sought-after expertise to healthcare facility, critical infrastructure, and built environment projects. Learn more about our healthcare services.
