Fire Protection Systems for New Construction in Texas
The National Fire Protection Association has an entire fire code devoted to new building construction requirements to protect the health, safety and welfare of the people inside. In addition to ensuring you construct your building with the proper materials and fire mitigation techniques, it’s also vital to install a properly designed fire protection system. From sprinkler head location to exit lighting to fire extinguisher installation, you must take fire protection seriously to get your building up to code before it opens to the public.

Fire Protection Design for New Construction Projects
When we design a fire protection system, we take every component into account, including:
- Fire sprinklers: The number and type of fire sprinklers your building needs depends on what type of facility you operate. We look at every detail of the building, from pipe friction to elevation changes, and design a layout that provides optimal protection from fire.
- Fire pumps: Sprinkler systems rely on a fire pump to ensure the water pressure is high enough to properly extinguish a blaze. During the design process for your new construction project, we size your system’s fire pump accurately so you know your sprinklers will work if a fire starts.
- Fire alarms: When it comes to saving lives, nothing is more important than a properly designed and installed fire alarm system. We carefully configure a design for your new construction building that includes all the components you need, from smoke detectors and pull stations to sirens and strobe lights. We also explain the benefits of fire alarm system monitoring to help you understand the importance of this feature for your building.
- Fire suppression systems: Fire sprinklers aren’t appropriate for rooms that contain computers or other sensitive electrical equipment. For these areas, waterless fire suppression uses foam to smother the flames, leaving behind little to no residue so your equipment remains undamaged. Flammable liquids also require special fire suppression systems to prevent the blaze from spreading.
- Kitchen fire suppression: If your new construction project is a restaurant, count on us to fulfill your commercial kitchen’s special fire suppression requirements. Ordinary sprinklers and extinguishers are not effective against cooking fires, so you need unique kitchen fire protection to put out the flame. We can design your suppression system and fit code-compliant Class K fire extinguishers into the design as well.
