Residential Fire Protection Projects
VFP Fire Systems has been a leader in the design and installation of all types of residential fire sprinkler systems. We have installed sprinkler systems in lake cabins, single family homes, apartment buildings, dormitories, hotels and high rise condominiums.
VFP has been at the forefront in promoting the education of home owners to the benefits of fire sprinkler protection for their dwellings.

This project was contracted direct with the owner/developer G. M. Fedorchak & Associates and construction is ongoing.
