Our Fire Safety Specialists (plan reviewers) review plans and specifications to ensure they meet fire/life safety codes and local ordinances and standards. They examine commercial and residential plans to locate potential fire hazards and ensure the presence of adequate fire protection systems. Specialists may also suggest necessary changes and improvements to enhance fire safety on proposed or existing projects.
