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.
