Designs for fire protection systems require a thorough understanding of the numerous city and state building and fire codes and their intent. Code compliance and cost effectiveness can best be achieved when a well qualified fire protection engineer is engaged early in the design process. This gives the engineer the opportunity to thoroughly discuss the project with government officials in the project's early stages and through it's progression. Also, because a fire protection engineer has a deep understanding of the codes, more design solutions are possible.Antal & Associates can provide design and consulting services including fire alarm and emergency communication systems, fire suppression and special hazard systems, risk analysis, smoke management and passive building construction systems.
