We offer in-house fire protection engineering consulting, suppression system design, property loss control consulting, and fire safety engineering and management consulting. Our team has a wealth of experience in the design and upgrade of fire protection and other life safety systems meeting all current building codes, insurance, fire marshal and other standards. PSB has successfully designed fire alarm systems meeting all of the requirements of various Local Fire Department, International Code Council, ADA, NFPA 72 & 72E, and NFPA 101 (Life Safety Code). These designs have utilized all fire alarm system types, including hard-wired, addressable, and PC-based, multiplexed systems. PSB’s experience encompasses the installation of wet and dry pipe sprinklers systems, an extension of existing sprinkler system piping, hazard assessment, and the design of chemical-based fire suppression systems.

Our team’s broad knowledge of the building and fire codes allows us to integrate fire alarm and suppression systems, coordinate fire protection systems with building features, develop cost-effective alternatives during the design development process, identify the need for additional systems and features that codes may not adequately address, and coordinate construction period services and final surveys.

Our experts provide comprehensive structural and technical fire protection solutions, assisting you in the planning, development, maintenance and documentation of a functional and reliable fire protection plan. When seconds count, early detection, warning and extinguishing systems must work in unison to facilitate safe evacuation, minimize damage and reduce liability.
