A New Look on Fire Protection Consulting

In today’s built environment, you need unique solutions to building and fire protection challenges.

Our company’s history starts just 2 years ago, but don’t let that fool you as the foundation and goals of the firm have been over a decade in the making.  This firm was established in order to provide clients with first-rate fire protection engineering consulting services, focusing on computer fire and egress modeling and performance-based designs.  Of course, we provide more traditional services as well!

The main drive behind our work is to provide innovative design approaches and solutions to unique client challenges.  By breaking away from the corporate overhead, large margins, and investor-driven goals, we can provide the highest quality deliverables to our clients at the responsiveness and fees they deserve.

Curiosity

We constantly explore current trends, methodologies, and products in the fire protection and building industry.

Quality

We provide top quality deliverables at the highest technical competency, ensured through thorough QA processes.
