Fire Protection Services
Holmes brings expertise in the layout of holistic system designs– including fire detection alarms, sprinklers and hydrant/standpipe systems.
Our fire protection solutions are implemented at the nexus of architecture, mechanical electrical and plumbing (MEP) systems, civil and structural engineering, as well as local jurisdiction and fire department requirements. As communicative team members, we design integrated systems that accommodate a project’s competing interests and constraints while meeting or exceeding code compliance. With our staff’s background in contracting, we bring a high level of pragmatism to our projects; we know how to drive approvals forward and get systems built.
Simultaneously, we explore aesthetic and technical possibilities through sophisticated 2D and 3D modelling software. Rendered at a high level of detail, our models help a project team visualize how systems fit with the architecture and overall programmatic elements of a building. Since Holmes also provides fire engineering, we bring the advantage of engineering both sides of the fire.
