Fire Protection

Fire Protection Engineering plays an increasingly significant role in today’s changing industries. An in-depth understanding of today’s codes, standards, and new technologies impacts the overall implementation cost of fire protection systems to clients.

We are an independent consulting company, having no affiliation with equipment and material manufacturers. This allows us to provide our clients with an independent, unbiased approach to each project.

  • Code Consulting – determination of the minimum fire protection requirements set forth by applicable local, national, or international building codes.
  • Audits and Surveys – field evaluations of facilities and buildings identifying any deficiencies associated with fire protection and alarm systems.
  • Hazard Identification – properly identifying and understanding hazards and developing cost effective and practical solutions to protect them.
  • Fire Protection Systems Design/Review – practical, cost effective design solutions for water based suppression, special hazard, and fire alarm and detection systems.
  • Hydraulic Analysis – using hydraulic calculation models to optimize water distribution through a firemain or water based suppression system.
  • Client Liaison/Negotiation – represent our client’s interests with authority having jurisdiction and insurance companies to clarify and interpret specific requirements and design philosophies.
