Code Compliant Fire Safety Consultants
HRSS provides a code compliant fire and life safety system, meeting all state, local and federal regulations. Our fire safety consultants possess deep technical knowledge of all fire safety code regulations including applicable National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) safety codes such as NFPA 101, NFPA 72 and others. We ensure that your commercial fire alarm system meets regulations issued by the International Building Code (IBC), Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and local fire codes.
The City of Chicago issues municipal ordinances for buildings and fire safety, enforced by the Fire Prevention Bureau of Chicago’s Fire Department. This is an authority having jurisdiction (AHJ) which conducts general inspections of businesses, high-rise buildings, public places of assembly, hotels, schools, and other commercial properties to ensure code compliance. HRSS provides a plan with a detailed fire alarm system design including UL listed equipment and proper placement of all detection and notification devices to meet all fire and life safety codes applicable for your building layout and operations.
As part of our fire safety consulting services, HRSS will compile all data sheets for submission to the AHJ for permit approval.
Fire and Life Safety Consultants Now and in the Future
The fire and life safety consultants at HRSS help you to evaluate the best commercial fire alarm system for you, including all associated costs now and in the future. Planning for system upgrades or expansions is an important consideration, and the fire alarm and life safety system you choose now will directly impact your costs in the future. We listen carefully to your needs and design aspirations to facilitate your fire and life safety development through innovative fire safety engineering techniques, often going far beyond code compliance.
Our fire & life safety consultants have designed innovative fire and life safety systems for some of the most unique buildings in Chicago such as the Reid Murdoch Building, a seven-story building constructed in 1914 and updated in the 1980’s. The building needed upgrades to fire alarm equipment with minimal downtime due to busy operations and typical full occupancy. We pre-built and pre-programmed fire alarm control panels with a step-by-step plan for a quick transition to the newer system.
