Designing Safe Storage and Warehouse Facilities is Our Top Priority

Picture_Section 1 -Sectors_Industrial & Manufacturing_Storage & WarehousesKeeping facilities and personnel safe from fire and other hazards is a major responsibility for any company, owner, or manager of a storage or warehouse facility.  It becomes even more challenging when these facilities are used to store hazardous materials.  Having an effective fire protection and life safety program is an essential part of your strategy.  JENSEN HUGHES’ engineers provide our clients with the expertise and resources to achieve their safety goals.

Our engineers assist our clients by developing solutions that are practical, effective, and compliant with applicable codes and regulations.  Our clients may choose to incorporate a complete fire and life safety program; however, we also work with our clients to tailor a plan for their specific needs from a roster of various elements such as:

  • Environmental Design and Consulting
  • Fire Modeling
  • Fire Protection Engineering Services
  • Fire Sprinkler and ESFR System Design
  • Flammable Liquid Storage Analysis
  • Spill Control/Secondary Containment
  • Smoke/Heat Venting
  • Explosion Control Design
  • Hazardous Materials Management Plans (HMMP)
  • Hazardous Materials Inventory Statements (HMIS)
  • Emergency Management Planning
  • Loss Control
  • Risk Management
  • Support for UL Testing

Extensive Hazardous Materials Experience

Picture_Section 2 -Sectors_Industrial & Manufacturing_Storage & WarehousesOur clients value our extensive background of addressing the needs of warehouses that store flammable and combustible liquids and other hazardous materials.  Our clients rely on us to identify code issues and develop cost-effective ways to comply with local and national regulations.  How do we know so much about these codes and regulations?  Members of our team sit on many of the key committees that develop these rulings, such as NFPA 30.  This direct participation provides us with a unique insight behind the codes, which in turn allows us to recommend pragmatic and cost-effective solutions.  In developing basic fire protection designs for warehouses, we integrate the necessary elements for prescriptive fire protection systems that are cost-effective to install and maintain.  For challenging designs involving life safety, property protection, and environmental protection, our engineers may develop a performance-based design, one that is focused on specific protection criteria.  We are not associated with any equipment or product vendors and therefore do no have pre-conceived conclusions.  This results in an unbiased assessment of the facility’s fire protection and safety needs.  Whatever the fire protection situation, our clients know they can depend on JENSEN HUGHES to analyze their specific needs, develop a set of recommendations to address those needs, and assist with obtaining, installing, and testing the optimal solution for their storage and warehouse facility.
