Lovett Consultants

Storage / Occupancies

Storage Occupancy projects include warehouses, airport hangers, distribution centers and garages.  Below are some examples of projects Lovett Consultants has worked on.

ACA Aircraft Maintenance Hangar
Dulles Airport, Washington DC

  • This was a new aircraft maintenance hangar with a 300,000 gallon water storage tank.
  • 85,000 sq. ft. - 1 story
  • Mixed Occupancy, Offices, Assembly/Conference, Moderate Hazard Storage, Flammable & Combustible Storage and a Paint Shop.
  • BOCA National Building Code and NFPA 409 Standard for Aircraft Hangars, Type 2C Construction
  • The design called for a AFFF foam suppression system in the hangar bays, and no under wing systems. A diesel fire pump was required for the system.
  • Lovett Consultants provided code analysis, exit calculations, fire protection programs, and a plan review. We developed the fire suppression system layout for the sprinklers and reel hoses, hydraulic calculations and suppression specifications.

Lowe's Distribution Center
Statesville, NC

  • This was a new regional distribution center for Lowe's.
  • 940,000 sq. ft. - 1 story warehouse
  • Moderate Hazard Storage with offices

  • The facility is not compartmented by fire walls and has interior mezzanines and travel distances in excess of 400 feet.
