If you’re in the process of designing a new construction project in Houston, you must comply with NFPA 5000 if you hope to receive your Certificate of Occupancy in a timely manner.

Fire Protection Services for New Construction Projects in Houston
As a full-service fire protection company, we offer everything you need, including:
- Fire sprinklers: Installing a code-compliant sprinkler system in your new building requires careful examination of the floor plan, fire threats, building temperatures, water pressure, pipe friction, and more. We explore all these factors to ensure the system we design is perfect for your needs.
- Fire pumps: When water pressure isn’t adequate, a fire pump kicks in to ensure your sprinkler system operates as intended. We size your fire pump carefully and install it in the proper location to provide the high level of performance you expect.
- Fire alarms: A primary function of your fire protection system is to save lives. This means you can’t go without a properly designed and installed fire alarm. We use CAD software to custom design every aspect of your fire alarm system, from the location of pull stations and smoke detectors to the brightness of strobe lights to annunciator panel settings. We also offer fire alarm monitoring to ensure a quick response from the fire department in an emergency.
- Fire suppression systems: Some buildings contain server rooms, historical archives, flammable liquid storage, and other sensitive items that make fire sprinklers unsuitable. If your new construction project features any unique rooms, we can outfit them with a fire suppression system that uses foam or other waterless firefighting methods to extinguish flames.
- Kitchen fire suppression: Are you building a restaurant or another building with a commercial kitchen? We are well-versed in kitchen fire suppression equipment designed to smother cooking fires with foam. Clean chemical agents don’t leave residue behind, which minimizes the damage and shortens your recovery period. We can also help outfit your kitchen with code-compliant Class K portable fire extinguishers.
