Code compliance for fire resistive construction in existing buildings is an ongoing challenge for facility managers. When deficiencies are noted during door inspection surveys, questions may arise as to the necessity of particular fire door assemblies and whether any alternatives to compliance exist when you are faced with very costly repairs.
We offer code consulting services from licensed fire protection engineering staff who can evaluate a facility to develop more comprehensive life safety drawings to use for survey and inspection purposes. We can also develop code equivalencies and engineering judgments necessary to develop code modifications to meet the requirements of local, regional, and national Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ). We can even work to develop alternative strategies for determining the required frequency of fire door inspections where appropriate.
We offer fire safety services in Virginia and across the U.S.
