We employ NICET (National Institute for Certification in Engineering Technologies) certified design technicians specializing in water based fire protection systems. With 30 plus years of combined experience, our design team can provide:

  1. Existing system assessments- Renovating a current or new space? Our expert design technicians (with the help of professional Fire Protection Engineers when required) can assess your current system and determine what is the most economical way to retro-fit your existing sprinkler system to accommodate your new needs.
  2. Design Build/Value Engineering-New construction? When given a set of architectural plans our design technicians can help your engineer determine what level of protection you need in the most economical way. Through value engineering we can make cost saving recommendations regarding your construction plans that will make your new fire sprinkler system much more economical.
  3. 3D CAD Design-Our design team uses the most current and up to date AutoCAD technology. With our software we can build a 3D model of the fire sprinkler system, hydraulically calculate it to ensure it is code compliant, and list it for pre-fabrication all before a single installer or piece of pipe is on site. This ensures a fast, hassle free install.
  4. 3D BIM Coordination-In addition to AutoCAD our design team utilizes Navisworks. Our 3D fire sprinkler system models can be uploaded into a Navisworks coordination file that contains the building structure as well as 3D models from other mechanical trades. This allows us to fully coordinate our system in 3 dimensions. This speeds up installation and prevents unforeseen coordination issues.

Quick FAQ....

I have a standpipe system with two risers. The original design indicates a total flow of 750 gpm (2839 Lpm). Am I required to flow this much water for the five year flow test?

No. When conducting the five year flow test, one riser is tested at a time. Therefore, the flow should be a total of 500 gpm (1892 Lpm), 250 gpm (946 lpm) for each of the two topmost outlets.
