Fire Protection Systems
AEGIS Engineering designs fire protection systems with the individual needs of each client in mind and can assist with every phase of the project from planning, to design, to construction and commissioning. Fire protection system design includes wet and dry automatic sprinkler systems, preaction systems, deluge systems, specialty foam systems, clean agent suppression systems, fire pumps, standpipe systems, water supply and storage tanks. Our designs start with a solid foundational knowledge of fire codes, building codes and standards.
Fire suppression systems require special consideration, especially when unique architectural features are present in the building. Our fire protection engineers develop drawings and specifications for these systems adhering to a design philosophy shaped by attention to the aesthetic qualities of the building in addition to the requirements of fire code, building code, and NFPA standards. All system design drawings are developed using computer aided design software.
To assure competitive contractor selection, we prepare performance specifications rather than the traditional design specifications. We assist you with assessing the key system and component performance criteria necessary for meeting the objectives of your designs and detail those requirements into a customized specification. In addition to the product specifications, we also detail contractor qualifications, testing requirements, and commissioning criteria. AEGIS Engineering can tailor client guide specifications to the project, develop custom specifications, or utilize SpecsIntact in concert with the project team.
