By their nature, most construction projects are multi-faceted, and architects and general contractors are usually responsible for all aspects of the design and construction. But fire protection issues can present real concerns that can potentially lead to delays and increased costs. Issues such as hazardous materials or high-piled combustible storage can delay permitting and even Certificate of Occupancy if not properly addressed. Response Fire Protection specializes in dealing with these types of issues and assists architects and contractors resolve fire protection concerns.
Response Fire Protection also offers fire sprinkler design services to assist architects by ensuring that building fire protection requirements are addressed during the building design phase, avoiding unpleasant surprises as the project proceeds. We can provide written specifications or bid-specification drawings to assist building owners in ensuring the proper protection for their facility and competitive bids with clearly defined scope, reducing potential change orders. We can also help to keep the project proceeding in a timely manner by providing sprinkler design documents for submittal to the jurisdiction shortly after building plan completion, rather than waiting for a contractor to be brought on board.
