As fire and building codes continue to change, our close involvement in code development becomes of ever-more benefit to you. This involvement enables us to develop innovative engineering strategies and solutions to many code compliance problems that may occur during your project’s design and construction phases.
Our design expertise extends far beyond traditional fire detection, alarm and fire sprinkler systems to smoke control and special hazard protection. Using leading edge technology, we’re able to develop unique design strategies as well as validate alternative performance-based approaches.
Passive Fire Protection – Rated Construction & Compartmentation
Emergency and Exit Lighting System
An emergency light is a battery-backed lighting device that comes on automatically when a building experiences a power outage. Emergency lights are standard in new commercial and residential buildings and other occupancies also.
An exit sign is a device in facilities denoting the location of the emergency exit , guiding people to the closest exit in case of fire or other emergency. Most relevant codes require exit signs to be permanently lit. Exit signs are designed to be absolutely unmistakable and understandable to anyone.
Drawing Review and Approval
Reviewing drawings and installations of fire protection systems for existing facilities for the purpose of evaluating design, function and code compliance. These evaluations provide a sound basis upon which building owners, property managers and architects/engineers can make decisions regarding retrofit or replacement of fire protection systems. Analyzing fire protection system drawings to determine whether or not the designs conform with the fire protection master plan as well as comply with applicable codes and standards.
Technical Specification Development
Developing detailed specifications for fire protection systems that provide for maximum performance and cost-effectiveness by enabling multiple suppliers to bid. This service scope may also include the preparation of cost estimates for the recommended systems.
To find the exact water demand, required pressure head, and pipe sizes with less friction losses by use of approved hydraulic software.
