More About Our Engineer Services

We are Driven to serve engineers by helping your experienced team of mechanical, electrical, civil, and structural engineers who have devoted their careers and years of their lives to their chosen field of expertise. We can add value to your projects by sharing our many years of fire protection experience with you and by completing your mechanical team. Our technicians are NICET certified and have been formally trained in fire sprinkler system design and calculation. Our senior staff members are experienced in plan review and in reviewing hydraulic calculations performed by others, helping to ensure that quality is maintained at the high level we expect from our staff. Also, with many years involved in the actual installation of these systems, we can bring extensive amounts of real world, hands-on experience to your projects in the fire protection arena.

Another way in which we can greatly add value to your engineering team is through our vast experience with project estimating across a very large region of the country. In addition to the system design, we can also provide accurate budgets for projects through each level of the design process. We can provide varying levels of service, from basic schematic system layout all the way to full submittals to AHJ’s and insurance providers prior to bidding processes and contractor selection. Different projects call for different levels of pre-bid design, and we will work with you to ensure that the fire protection system proposed for any property will meet all required codes and standards and eliminate unnecessary change orders throughout the construction process.
