If you are strolling Tampa’s lovely Riverwalk, and stop to enjoy fine dining in one of Tampa Bay’s most iconic restaurants – Ulele – be sure to take a peek at the ceiling. Tucked away under the exposed beam wooden deck you’ll see fire sprinkler pipe that represents an award winning system installed by Cox Fire Protection – recognized at Associated Builders and Contractor’s Excellence in Construction Awards. Also – be sure to catch the door handles – hand crafted by CFP out of sprinkler pipe! If you are an elderly resident of South Hillsborough County whose resources for premier healthcare have been previously limited – cutting edge medical technology is now available at St. Joseph’s Hospital South. Life safety systems for that facility are also part an award winning project, installed by Cox Fire Protection. Through the years, Cox Fire is proud to have been the recipient of eight Eagle Awards From Associated Builders and Contractors for excellence in construction – and this year again, walked away with two Eagles!
