Extensive Code Knowledge
Building, Fire, and Life Safety Codes are constantly changing and being modified by city and state jurisdictions. Every state, and often every county, has different requirements, as does almost every government agency.

Whatever codes apply to your facility, Allen Engineering is familiar with them and can provide consulting and design services for the challenging Fire Protection and Life Safety requirements found in today's complex Building, Fire, and Life Safety Codes. Whether it's identifying State and local jurisdictional requirements early in the design process, or bringing engineering solutions to issues uncovered during design or construction, we can help by providing a comprehensive fire protection and life safety code analysis.

Existing Issues Resolved

We are experienced with:
· International Fire Code (IFC)
· International Building Code (IBC)
· NFPA Codes
· Department of Defense Unified   Facilities Criteria (UFC)
· Factory Mutual (FM Global)
· GSA Facilities Standards
Fire Protection and Life Safety requirements can be confusing to interpret and difficult to plan and design for, even for experienced architects and engineers. Allen Engineering can provide code interpretations or engineer a performance based solution to a challenging design concept. We can help develop a strategy for compliance with an overlooked requirement, coordinate with your local jurisdiction, provide code interpretations or engineer a performance based solution to a challenging design concept.

We have performed condition assessments of office buildings, schools, industrial, manufacturing, woodworking, storage, government facilities, and retail properties. We can identify what work must be done, what work should be done, and what work doesn't need to be done, to reduce your exposure to a loss.

We also assist building managers meet GSA leasing requirements by completing the mandatory Fire and Life Safety Evaluation report.

We have helped clients successfully navigate relocation of facilities. Our due diligence assessments assure investors that they are not buying into a non-compliant facility that will incur costly code-related liabilities.
