Fire protection and life safety are specialized services that Whitman engineers and designers have the appropriate experience, skill and training to perform.
Fire protection and life safety systems are critical to the safety of all building occupants. Our engineers prepare designs that focus on providing reliable distribution of appropriate volumes of water at the correct pressure to all areas of the building during a fire event. Our designs also take into account hydraulic flow calculations and dynamic pressure drop calculations across the entire fire protection system. Our designs are in conformance with NFPA and all local code requirements and specific appropriate hardware while taking building configuration and other architectural features into account.
Our professionals are experienced in providing fire protection and life safety systems for schools, universities, corporate spaces, retail locations, hotels, residential structures, chemical production areas and hazardous material handling and storage locations.
