Performance-Based Design


Building codes, by definition, restrict what can and can’t be designed, right? The answer isn’t always a simple yes or no – if you want to think outside of the box and design to the intent of the code, we can help. Our performance-based design group specializes in engineered solutions to many fire, life safety and building code challenges.

What lights your fire?

  • Smoke Control Rational Analysis
  • Smoke Control System Design

Construction

It is time to get things built. You value a partner who ensures it’s built right. We understand that each of the last 150 days of a project are often more effort than all of the previous days combined. When it is crunch time and TCO is on the line, who is your biggest ally and advocate?

Our Construction Period Services assist you with quality assurance in the built environment, streamlining the TCO and C of O process with a focus on limiting time consuming re-work and costly change orders when it comes to life safety system installation, testing and commissioning. We work closely with general contractors, trade partners and AHJ’s to develop a plan and ensure it is vigorously implemented and adhered to.

If you build it, they will come:
  • Integrated System Testing
  • Smoke Control Special Inspection and Commissioning
  • Fire Protection and Alarm System CA/CM Services
  • Project Liason Services and Technical Support
  • AHJ Representation and Negotiations
  • Staged/Phased TCO Facilitation
  • Transition to Occupancy Services
