Fire protection engineers use science and technology to protect people and property from fire when designing new buildings or renovations to existing buildings.
Our designs incorporate efficient, cost-effective passive and automatic fire protection systems. These systems are effective in detecting, containing, and controlling and/or and extinguishing a fire event in the early stages.
Planning for fire protection in/around a building involves knowing the four sources of fire: natural, manmade, wildfire and incidental and taking an integrated systems approach that enables our designers to analyze all of the building's components as a total building fire safety system package.
The analysis requires more than code compliance or meeting the minimum legal responsibilities for protecting a building. Therefore, we will creatively and efficiently integrate code requirements with other fire safety measures as well as other design strategies to achieve a balanced design that will provide the desired levels of safety.
