our solutions

Fire Alarm Engineering Consulting Solutions We Provide

Verification of fire alarm systems by local inspectors is not a given. Alarms must satisfy numerous requirements that differ among residential, commercial, and industrial structures.

Fire alarm

Mechanical Interface with Controls and Alarms

Many components constitute effective fire prevention. Yet these fire protective devices are often installed at different times by different parties. MNA designs coordinate these parts, e.g., sprinklers, smoke dampers, and gas shut-offs, so they will act as one holistic structure to detect and suppress fire and smoke.

Fire Protection of Wiring for Emergency Systems

Mechanical barriers such as metal conduits and inside wall installations minimize fire damage to wiring and circuitry. The use of wire with its insulation complements fire protective devices.

Fire Alarm Verification

Fire alarm consultants with MNA assure that our designs address the criteria of local and national fire alarm standards in every detail. This assurance covers the panel, devices, and all wiring in between. A documented verification that results from testing can be obtained here.

Fire Alarm Design Drawing Review

Should a property owner or manager already have a system design in hand, MNA engineers can serve as a second set of eyes, discerning flaws, or vulnerabilities in advance of a permit application.

Fire Alarm and Fire Protection

Depending on the size and purpose, many buildings by law must include specified fire prevention systems. Construction and occupancy permit applications must accordingly be submitted with reports on the performance of panels and various devices like smoke and heat detectors, strobes and horns, door-openers, sprinklers, and the like. We compile the necessary documentation.

our process

Our Fire Alarm System Consulting Services Process

A reliable and consistent fire alarm system design begins with a sequence of ordered steps.

Consulting and Advisory

This primary step is where MNA estimates financial and time investments. An orientation meeting is followed by an operational investigation and rudimentary sketches of the system. We also allow advisory inputs from other consultants.

Engineering Project

The next phase sees the client’s financial capacities and design preferences incorporated into our plans. In determining the feasibility of the project, we coordinate with other fire alarm consultants and arrange for the evaluation of any technician or engineer that the client may recommend.

Conceptual Design

Conceptual design refers to when MNA electrical engineers advise on the dimensions of the project as well as the total number of devices, and their locations. The standards for renderings, specifications and outlines are settled at this stage as well.

Preliminary Design

At this stage, things pick up. MNA engineers consult with a wide array of other experts to work out the initial schemata, measurements, and materials. Furthermore, we consider alternative designs and commence the process of applying for a certificate from building code officials.

Detailed Design

Here, many more elements of the design are specified and quantified on a floor plan that shows device locations, a list of zones, where the panel is situated, and construction specifications.

Construction Procurement

MNA advises clients on the correct and best ways to entertain and accept bids from fire alarm installation contractors. In addition, we aid in the preparation of contractual agreements with the successful bidder.

Construction Administration

When the project is underway, we offer on-site services relative to construction meetings, shop drawing reviews, and code compliance oversight. We also report when a contractor is eligible to make a payment request.

Our Fire Alarm Consulting and Design Projects

MNA Quality Consulting has fire safety engineering in our DNA. For 20+ years, we have assisted building owners and facilities managers ensure that structures are built to be code compliant regarding fire warning, protection and suppression characteristics.

It has been a great pleasure working with Monika. Her ability to influence others to achieve the team's vision is remarkable. Her endless support proved to be a great asset for any team out there that are looking for a great motivational supporter. Her knowledge brought upfront at the start of project and has been playing a valuable role since. It was a bitter sweet moment when the project was done and have to say goodbye to her as we all value her work very much.
