Fire-Resistive Construction

The building code and fire code establish the minimum requirements for fire-resistive construction. However, these prescriptive requirements often fail to support many of the unique design features utilized in today’s construction. AEGIS Engineering’s fire protection engineers utilize their combined experience and expertise to ensure that your project addresses building code requirements related to fire-resistance-rated construction provisions, while maintaining the aesthetics of your unique design. This includes assistance with engineering judgments for joints and penetrations of fire-rated assemblies.

Our fire protection engineers offer specialized expertise to design and assist you in implementing unique solutions that maintain your project goals while ensuring that building code and fire code provisions are appropriately applied, and hazards are mitigated. These solutions are always based on sound engineering, the building codes, fire codes, NFPA  and other standards, and industry practices.
