Fire risk assessment and life safety management is a universal concern for all types of occupancies from industrial to residential. Building codes and fire prevention codes are developed to insure occupant safety by requiring compliance with a myriad of standards that often require interpretation by experienced code experts. EH&E’s experience as a building technology company has provided exposures to all types of building environments with various fire and life safety issues. Our experience in biotechnology, healthcare and educational buildings and working with building officials in large metropolitan and rural communities have provided a diverse base of knowledge for all fire and life safety compliance issues.
