Fire Protection and Code Consulting

Saving lives and property is the fundamental goal of fire protection engineering and code consulting. Throughout history, countless demonstrations of fire’s indiscriminate ferocity have led to ever- improving fire safety and prevention protocols. Today, we focus on how building design influences the prevention and suppression of fires, as well as how that design can impact occupant use and safety.

The Woolpert team understands the complexity of fire protection code compliance, and we provide our clients with the knowledge they need to properly implement and maintain effective fire safety measures. We provide design, review and consulting services in common-sense, everyday language, and we serve as liaisons between our clients and regulatory agencies to facilitate clear and accurate communication.

As a full-service architecture, engineering and geospatial firm, Woolpert supports fire protection and code consulting projects with a wide range of multidisciplinary services. Our expert team will help you take the steps necessary to ensure the safety of your facility—and all those within it.
