Field Observation and Engineering Judgment
With the uniqueness and complexity of the built environment, conditions arise that require an alternate approach and evaluation including fire-resistive assemblies and construction techniques. With our understanding of codes, standards, and listed assemblies, we are able to provide field observations and documentation justifying these unusual conditions. We are familiar with testing standards and agencies such as Underwriters Labs. These evaluations and judgments are done on existing conditions as well as new construction. Our engineering judgments include documentation of our engineering opinion that the condition meets or exceeds the intent and requirements of the codes. We also present our findings to the jurisdiction with our extensive credentials and professional engineering judgment.
