Project Strong Arm, also known as the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, involved a lot of design coordination when Grunau installed the 1 dry pipe system, 4 wet pipe systems, 2 electric fire pump systems and limited underground work at the theme park attraction. Sprinkler drops were laid out and installed without a ceiling in place, then the framing and drywall were attached, followed by the theming contractors' wood slats and beams. Several of the rooms have high ceilings and small doorways so reaching construction areas was challenging. Grunau worked with the Universal Studios Creative team to coordinate sprinklers with ceiling finishes.
