Providing Historic Preservation for National Treasures

Picture_Section 1a-Sectors_Historic Buildings & Museums_Museums, Galleries & LibrariesFire protection issues are particularly complex in historic buildings, monuments and other cultural institutions where fire safety engineers face the combined challenges of protecting priceless property and ensuring life safety for thousands of attendees per day.  Often, they must design non-intrusive systems that meet these challenges without impacting the historic fabric of the building. JENSEN HUGHES’ reputations for excellence in fire engineering is evident in our client list. Our experience ranges from protecting rare zoological samples stored in flammable preservative fluids to preserving the architectural integrity of historic building while maintaining life safety.
