Meeting all of our clients needs using performance based design to demonstrate and ensure full compliance with all state & local codes, permitting, and variances
What We Offer
FRA’s code experts help clients achieve full compliance with state and local codes, obtain permits and meet deadlines to ensure project schedules. When unique challenges are presented our engineers execute performance-based alternative design work to demonstrate code equivalency.
Analyses entail fuel loading and hazard assessments, timed-egress studies, computational fire modeling, and bench- or full-scale fire testing to evaluate specific fire hazards.
Assessments include evaluating the effectiveness of existing or proposed fire protection systems, increasing maximum allowable travel distances, effects of window breakage on emergency egress, omission of passive fire protection on structural steel, and the need for sprinklers beneath beneath floors and in high-ceiling configurations.
