Below are Brief Descriptions of our Key Services:
Hazard Evaluation: We evaluate hazards for performance based on the construction type, the protection levels used in the building, the occupancy of the building, the processes in the building, and local response capabilities. By taking all of these factors into account, we provide designers with comprehensive information.
Computer Modeling: We use the latest computer modeling techniques to ensure that you have the most effective fire suppression and detection systems, as well as a comprehensive evacuation program. We utilize: timed egress modeling, smoke evacuation modeling, fire detection device activation time (sprinklers and smoke/heat detectors), and compartment fire modeling.
Design Methodology: Our engineers tie together code requirements, test data, and computer modeling in order to create designs that reduce hazards and provide the highest level of property protection.
Value Engineering: Because our staff knows the construction side of system engineering and system installation, as well as the latest technologies available, we can significantly reduce your expenditures.
