Fire Protection Reports establish building fire and life safety components to establish a baseline for your design team and AHJs.
Building and fire codes are becoming increasingly complicated with local amendments and interpretations only furthering the complexity. Leave negotiations on key provisions to our team of experts who specialize in the implementation of these provisions.
TERPconsulting provides Accessibility Consulting for all types of commercial, industrial, and municipal projects.

The use of computational fire and egress models can justify alternate design schemes or reduce exhaust fan and exit widths, thereby saving project costs while maintaining an acceptable level of safety.
From sprinklers and special suppression to fire alarm and detection, TERPconsulting can review and analyze existing systems or design new ones while optimizing performance.
Our firestop inspectors are certified to serve as independent third-party inspectors through multiple means, such as through the International Firestop Council. Our inspectors are well-versed in building and fire code requirements, including those applicable to through-penetration and joint firestopping systems. Although the building code requires a firestop special inspector for high-rise buildings, along with those in Risk Categories III and IV, TERPconsulting can provide firestop special inspection services on any project at the request of the Owner or Authority Having Jurisdiction.
NFPA 241 is the Standard for Safeguarding Construction, Alteration, and Demolition Operations. Per many local and state fire codes, a comprehensive NPFA 241 plan must be enforced whenever a building is undergoing construction, alteration, or demolition operations. The plan must clearly establish responsibilities for all parties as well as discuss the means and methods for complying with the requirements of NFPA 241. TERPconsulting can develop, advise, or assist in the enforcement of a NFPA 241 plan.
We offer expert witness and loss consulting services for varying types of cases. Our professional fire protection engineers can provide valuable insight for cases involving insurance coverage, fire protection engineering, fire life safety science, fire suppression, fire investigation, fire cause and origin, or fire and explosion investigation, as they pertain to a fire or safety-related lawsuit.
