Reliable, code compliant fire and life safety systems are important to protecting occupants from injury and preventing devastating property damage. We work with clients throughout the design, inspection, testing and maintenance process to resolve any specific and practical problems associated with the execution of these systems and ensure that they are operating effectively and efficiently. Utilizing functional and acceptance system testing, we verify that project specifications meet minimum code requirements, performance-based design and end-user requirements. We also provide fire safety system certification when required.

Fire Alarm Commissioning

Fire alarm system commissioning is much more than simply testing the system and placing it into service at the end of a construction project. We keep your fire alarm system at optimum operating performance with a process that extends from design through installation, testing, and project closeout.

Smoke Control Commissioning

Smoke control systems are complex and can be interdependent on many other building systems. We perform a wide variety of testing, sequence of operations tests, pressure differentials and door opening forces. We also perform both cold and hot smoke tests for atrium and other large volume spaces for those jurisdictions that require smoke test.

Fire Suppression System Commissioning

Fire suppression systems are fundamental for making building interiors safe. We have extensive experience in providing detailed plans that include specific system and sub-system tests and inspections with associated pass/fail criteria. We review shop drawings and provide review/acceptance of operations and maintenance (O&M) manuals. We can also provide training support and resolve warranty issues.

Integrated Testing

Overall fire protection for a building is a holistic approach to reach the goal of life safety. Integrated testing provides verification, documentation, and functional end-to-end testing to confirm that the various active & passive fire and life safety systems work in concert together to protect people and property.
