Life Safety Analysis

Life safety codes have long since been established to address various concerns relating to the construction, protection, and occupancy features of facilities and buildings. Our life safety analysis helps to ensure that the construction, protection, and occupancy features necessary to minimize danger to life from the effects of fire are in place. This includes the criteria for the design of egress systems so as to allow prompt escape of occupants from buildings or where desirable, into safe areas within buildings.

The International Fire Code (IFC) and International Building Code (IBC) establish the minimum requirements for providing a reasonable level of life safety and property protection from the hazards of fire, explosion or dangerous conditions in new and existing buildings, structures and premises, while providing safety to fire fighters and emergency responders during emergency operations.

Allen Engineering recognizes the fact that life safety is more than a matter of egress. We also address protective features and systems, building services, emergency response, operating features, maintenance activities, and other provisions of the codes. In recognition of the fact that achieving an acceptable degree of life safety depends on additional safeguards to provide adequate egress time or protection for people exposed to fire.

We systematically assess the risks and potential exposures to an emergency event, fire, or hazardous material incident that could put people and property at risk. We have conducted industry best practice workshops, provided on-site customized training, and performed leading roles in the development and implementation of industry and national standards and codes. We provide our clients with written reviews and assessments regarding the adequacy of existing fire protection and life safety conditions relative to fire, occupant behavior patterns and other safety considerations.
