FIRE & RISK ENGINEERING offers a broad base of experience, diverse capabilities and a fundamental commitment to technical excellence in the following areas:
Fire Protection Engineering: The application of engineering and scientific principles to the evaluation and analysis of fire/explosion phenomena, including fire behavior, spread and development.
Fire Protection Systems Evaluation: Analysis of fuel loads, combustibility, pyrometrics, construction, life safety and tenability factors, and building/process operations in the performance analysis of sprinkler and other fire protection systems.
Forensic Engineering and Litigation Support: Determination of fire cause, origin, development and spread as well as contributing factors. This includes the development and testing of scientifically-reliable hypotheses and sensitivity analyses, as well as "what-if" scenarios, which can be effectively communicated through relevant expert testimony to diverse audiences.
Risk Management Consulting, Master Planning and Program Development: The combination of assessment, loss control and financing toward reduction in the overall cost of fire/explsoion and related business risks.
Fire, Life Safety and Building Code Consulting: Identification, interpretation and development of equivalent alternatives based upon a qualified understanding of the purpose, evolution and underlying intent of the applicable and relevant codes, standards and regulations.
Risk Assessments and Fire Defense Evaluations: Evaluation of the actual level of fire and life safety through the comprehensive assessment of risk in comparison/contrast with available fire/emergency defense capabilities.
