Our building and fire code experts collaborate with architects, developers, owners, construction firms, design-build teams and jurisdictions. Not only do we stay apprised of regulatory updates needed for your projects, but we also work on creative applications for modern materials and methods that have not yet been widely adopted in building and fire code regulations.


Building and fire codes can present many challenges for new and existing buildings. We work with our clients from start to finish on code reviews, applications, interpretations, proactively address issues and provide documentation when needed. With local offices present across the globe, we bring experience collaborating with hundreds of jurisdictions and thousands of projects worldwide.


When unique design and site goals push the boundaries of the established code, we provide jurisdictional appeals, alternate means and methods, engineering judgments and specialty computer modeling services to prove fire and life safety goals are met. These solutions provide flexibility to our clients and open potential and possibilities for their designs.


When you need reliable multi-disciplinary experts to provide end-to-end support for your projects, our team is there from the competitive proposal stages to permitting. We have tenured relationships with design and construction firms across the industry, as well as large campus owners and representatives, where our partnerships help identify opportunities, find success in the pursuit and early design-build process, and push positive outcomes at the close.


Specialty markets such as healthcare, confidential business campuses, publicly funded facilities and historic sites add an additional layer of complexity to design and construction projects, whether they are from the ground up, shell and core, or tenant improvements. Our deep roster of certified professionals hosts experts in managing the various criteria of civic agencies or private owner preferences in every niche of the built environment.
