Professional Fire Prevention & Protection Consulting Engineers

Our fire protection engineering services are aimed at fostering safe buildings and decreasing the chances of a destructive fire. As authorities in construction engineering, MNA’s experts in fire code consulting do not simply check off safety boxes.

We evaluate the entire building to determine exposures and hazards particular to that location. Knowing the architect’s design and the electrical, mechanical, and structural layouts, our fire protection engineering company brings the property up to code and goes the extra distance in fire protection.

Fire-Safe Engineering Design Solutions We Provide

Fire code consulting at MNA involves sharing with clients detailed schematics that show where sensors, alarms, suppression devices, and connective circuitry are best positioned.

Fire Suppression Systems

MNA Quality Consulting prides itself on a solid record of risk reduction. Yet all risks cannot be eliminated, so fire suppression capacity must be present and ready to activate. Still, buildings differ from one another, often significantly, so designs to override the outbreak of flames will likewise do best when suited to the property. Some places, libraries, and museums, for example, have contents that would be harmed by systems where the medium of suppression is water. Fortunately, fire protection engineering consultants can offer better alternatives.

Water-Based System

The omnipresent fire hydrant in towns and cities demonstrates that water is the most frequently used weapon against fires. However, fire protection systems are also accessible inside buildings. Standpipe systems, for instance, allow for immediate hose attachment and sufficient pressure to cause fire to recede. In-house fire pumps generate water quickly and are especially crucial in high-rise structures. Sprinklers can inhibit fires from above and prevent their conquest of more space. MNA fire code consulting helps owners and managers strategically utilize one or all of these elements.

Special Hazard Systems

As noted, there are structures in which the contents are valuable yet prone to water damage. In such buildings, our experts on fire protection engineering may recommend and design a suppression system that emits foam or another agent that leaves sensitive inventory or equipment intact.

Other Services

Other tasks related to fire suppression systems are:

1. Fluid delivery calculations – measuring the time between the activation of a suppression system and when the water/agent makes contact with the fire.

2. Three-dimensional modeling of a building to determine whether visual or heat sensors are vulnerable to obstruction.

3. Applying pressure gauges to adjacent hydrants to test water pressure.

our process

Our Fire Protection Designing and Consulting Services Process

We are fire prevention engineers at MNA Quality Consulting. Whether the project is fire protection systems or some other area of building design, we put a premium on order and efficiency. In so doing, we complete a project step-by-step, phase-by-phase, to assure nothing gets missed and the property is made safe against damage and instability.

Consulting and Advisory

MNA first enters into an agreement with the client with regard to the subjects of consultation and the advisory reports we will issue. In accordance with the best practices of fire protection industry consulting, we cover the matters of fire alarms, plans for smoke control, and device testing.

Review of All Applicable Shop Drawings

All relevant drawings, architectural renderings, and schematic produced by manufacturers and contractors come under careful scrutiny by our fire-safety design professionals. During this process, MNA engineers probe for design flaws and any susceptibility or exposure to unwelcome combustion episodes. From this review, we assist in creating or maintaining a safer work environment.

Site Examination

Reviewing drawings and plans is an essential step in conceiving or upgrading fire protection systems but it is not a substitute for physical inspection. The final stage finds our consultants examining the site itself before making final recommendations to landlords and property managers.

Technology and Software Tools We Use

MNA and its clients benefit from state-of-the-art engineering technology that aids in analysis, modeling, and drafting. Improved devices and software allow for greater accuracy and precision when formulating fire safety engineering solutions and conducting fire protection consulting:

  • Two- and three-dimensional software for building analysis
  • Dynamic analysis software that works from varying inputs
  • Multi-dimensional drafting programs
  • Electronic access to the latest findings and peer-reviewed literature
  • Continuing education resources
