Sprinkler System Design

Temple Isaiah, Great Neck, NY


Temple Isaiah was a newly-constructed worship space that needed to install a fire suppression system.

MEP recommended and designed a system that connected to the water main and consisted of 70 wall mounted and pendant heads. We also added high heat sprinkler heads in spaces radiating solar heat through skylights. The designs were approved in the first submission and filed with Nassau County.

Temple Isaiah is a one story building, with a partial basement, consisting of 5,400 S.F. of worship space. This was a new construction project that was completed in 2008.

Project Origin and Goals

This project, which was classified under the A-3 NYS building code, called for the design of a complete new fire suppression sprinkler system.

MEP was retained directly by Temple Isaiah to design 100% of fire suppression sprinkler system.

Site Findings and Solutions

A new sprinkler service had to be connected to the water main. MEP designed a fire suppression system composed of approximately 70 wall mounted and pendant heads. MEP performed all the necessary hydraulic calculations and designed the project as per NFPA 13. High heat sprinkler heads were incorporated in spaces radiating solar heat through skylights.


MEP completed the design and specifications within schedule and the client approved the proposed design in the first submission. The design was filed and approved by Nassau County.
