Indianapolis Athletic Club Fire-Building

THE BUILDING
The Indianapolis Athletic Club was completed and occupied in 1922.
City and state officials indicate that neither jurisdiction had adopted nor
enforced a building code at the time of original construction.’
Notwithstanding the lack of a building code, the design and construction of
the Athletic Club building appears to have been consistent with generally
recognized practices of the 1920s. Typical building features included fireresistive
construction with open stairways, noncontinuous egress paths,
large air handling shafts without fire or smoke dampers, an unsupervised
manual fire alarm system, occupant use standpipes without fire department
hose outlets, and no automatic sprinklers.
The building construction most closely resembles Uniform Building
Code Type 1 construction or NFPA 220 Type 1 (4,3,3). Consequently,
the fire caused little structural damage despite its extensive spread. A
concrete protected steel frame supports concrete floor decks and
nonbearing masonry exterior walls. Interior partitions consist of plaster
and lath on wood studs. Vertical shaft enclosures, including the elevator,
stair, air handling, and plumbing shafts and chases are generally of
concrete masonry or brick masonry construction.
