Fire Protection

KNOW JUST WHERE THINGS FAILED

  • When fire protection systems fail, our job is to determine why. With the number of potential causative factors, including building design, smoke detection, alarms, and suppression systems, these investigations are anything but simple. A wide range of disciplines and expertise are often necessary to properly evaluate and investigate these cases.
  • AEI employs licensed professional engineers, NFPA-Certified Fire Protection Specialists, and fire protection industry experts who understand system components, system installations, best practices, applicable codes and industry standards.
  • We evaluate codes and standards, system design and installation, and electrical components to determine if the systems functioned properly. Time is another potential contributing element we consider. By including matters such as system maintenance, building upkeep and renovation work, the AEI team can isolate the relevant factors that contributed to a particular incident.
