Fire Detection and Notification is Essential for Protection of Life and Property

JENSEN HUGHES works under a philosophy of cohesive design from concept to execution. Our traditional design methodology integrates necessary elements to present a prescriptive fire alarm and detection system that is cost-effective to install and maintain.  This requires a thorough understanding of the relevant codes and the client’s needs.

Our engineers can develop performance-based designs for unique applications, which focus on specific protection criteria and include advanced fire modeling and testing.  While such a design process can require sophisticated analytics, our goal is to provide solutions that meet client needs.

JENSEN HUGHES engineers are active in code development, industry focus groups, and product development. Our objective is to assist the fire alarm industry by providing quality design and support services.


JENSEN HUGHES staff of registered fire protection engineers can determine system performance requirements, produce detailed design drawings and documents, perform manufacturer specific calculations, and evaluate the installation of systems. JENSEN HUGHES engineers have extensive design and construction experience.
