Michael Sheehan, P.E.
Principal & Founder
What drives you each day?
Every day is an adrenaline rush because I get to collaborate with a team of people that understand the work we do is much bigger than ourselves. In the past few years we have been fortunate to work on some of the largest, most complex projects with world renowned architects.
What career achievement brings you the most pride?
Watching SLS grow into a firm that puts the client first and gets results. It’s amazing to see how our talented life safety professionals, who come from of all different backgrounds, have created a company culture that is fun and rewarding.
What brought you this far?
My journey started when I was an intern at the National Fire Protection Association, and I couldn’t get enough. That was fifteen years ago and since then, I’ve worked in the architecture, engineering and construction industry giving it my all. In 2009, I established SLS where I serve as principal and work directly with clients on day to day project needs.
How do you stay so young?
I'm going grey very fast and attributing any withstanding youth to an Earl Grey tea addiction. Having a three-year-old daughter also keeps me in shape.
