Life Safety for New Construction

Our multi-discipline engineering team works with you in the design phase to identify potential compliance issues, develops solutions that meet design intent and remains your partner throughout the construction process. We work seamlessly alongside the construction management team to make sure the fire, life safety, mechanical, electrical, structural (MES) and security systems installations are fully coordinated across all other disciplines. For Healthcare facilities, we conduct drawing reviews to protect our clients directly, Jensen Hughes operates as the representative with and/or for the hospital, ASC and Long Term Care Facility.

Healthcare Facility Expertise

We identify potential issues with code compliance and fire attack to ensure the unique patient acuity in each area has been properly addressed in the protections required.

Life Safety Compliance Review

We provide a compliance review of life safety drawings for the applicable edition(s) of the Life Safety Code® which may reveal design oversights, improper application or inaccurate code provision interpretations.

Design Factors

We assess your drawings and analyze how they complement best practices for fire safety and evacuation planning.

Field Inspections

Our site visits serve as third-party field verifications. Spot-checks ensure as-built compliance with the applicable edition(s) of the Life Safety Code® and may take place at 50%, 75% and/or 90% completion.
