Our Services



CODE CONSULTING - Our team of consultants understand the relevant codes, standards and regulations through experience as design engineers and while acting as the authority having jurisdiction. We have established relationships with local authorities, which help to explain, clarify and interpret the design intent of the project and deliver the project on time and on budget.

PERFORMANCE-BASED DESIGN – Our consultants develop performance-based approaches to address unique design challenges, such as historic buildings, atriums, and smoke control systems. We utilize state of the art 3D computer modeling to simulate fire, smoke, and egress. The performance-based approach will satisfy the life safety and fire protection intent of the applicable codes.

DESIGN SERVICES – A complete range of fire and gas detection/protection system design services are available for all types of new and existing facilities ranging from hospitals, warehouses, and high-rise buildings to transportation terminals and shopping malls.
