Local Suwanee Company Awarded Large Contract to Upgrade Marta's Fire Protection System

Atlanta, GA--  M.C. Dean, Inc., a design-build firm, has been selected by MARTA to upgrade MARTA's fire protection system.

Representatives from the company said that MARTA will fund the project using $32 million in grants from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).  The money will be used to finance the upgrading and enhancing of MARTA's fire alarm, sprinkler and clean agent suppresion systems throughout more than 100 MARTA facilities including all 38 rail stations.

Mark Tibbetts, GM from M.C.Dean's Suwanee office says, "MARTA made a great choice when they selected our company. The M.C. Dean fire protection designers and project management team designated to run this project have extensive experience on similar projects.  Also because we are using local resources operating out of our Suwanee office to engineer, construct, integrate and commission the sytem, the ARRA grant money is going to be spent locally."
