The Boca Raton Resort and Club is one of the premier resort destinations and private club facilities in the United States. The resort, which was founded in 1926, originally opened as the 100-room Ritz-Carlton Cloister Inn and today comprises 1,047 hotel rooms across 337 acres. Its amenities include two 18-hole golf courses, a 50,000-square foot spa, seven swimming pools, 30 tennis courts, a full-service 32-slip marina, 13 restaurants and bars, and 200,000 square feet of meeting space.
The property fronts both Lake Boca and the Atlantic Ocean and employs 1,300 people. Sciens has been working with the Boca Raton Resort and Club for 30 years and has completed numerous projects. Expected future work includes upgrading systems at the property’s Yacht Club, Mizner Center, Spa, tennis pro shop, golf pro shop, a total hotel interior modernization, plus the addition of an integrated Onyxworks headend control station.
The Boca Resort and Club was looking for a solution to help reduce false alarms and improve internal communication, and requested a fully code-compliant design, installation and certified system.
Sciens designed, installed and commissioned a code-compliant Notifier fire alarm system consisting of 4,000+ devices with all buildings integrated into one complete system. We also added a graphics workstation giving the customer unparalleled transparency throughout the property and providing precise information to first responders, allowing for the fastest response to any emergency.
The Boca Resort and Club now has a fully code-compliant and integrated fire alarm system that has helped reduce false alarms significantly, while providing a much higher level of safety for resort occupants and improved communication to first responders. Such a system is critical in applications such as hotels, where guests may be asleep during an emergency event, and need clear and rapid notification and communication.
