The fire protection engineering expertise of TERPconsulting is indispensable when working on military projects, where national security and the safety of personnel and assets are beyond breach. Military facilities encompass a wide range of structures, from barracks and training facilities to weapon storage depots and research laboratories, each with its own specific fire safety challenges required to protect military assets.
TERPconsulting’s fire protection engineers assess the fire hazards associated with military projects and consider factors such as the storage and handling of explosives, ammunition, and flammable materials, as well as the operational requirements of sensitive equipment and systems. This analysis informs the design of bespoke fire prevention and protection measures provided by TERPconsulting that include advanced fire detection, specialized fire suppression agents, early warning systems, and fire-resistant building materials.
The key to the military market is knowledge of the different codes, standards, and criteria requirements specific to each branch of the military. The code specialists at TERPconsulting ensure strict compliance with military and governmental regulations, including those established by agencies like the Department of Defense (DoD) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). They work closely with authorities to obtain necessary permits and approvals, facilitating the smooth execution of military projects and can assist with both interpretations and guidance of discussions with authorities having jurisdictions (AHJs).
