Fire Protection

BNK Fire Protection Engineering has evolved and remained current as building code requirements have become more stringent regarding fire protection and life safety systems. Our design services include automatic fire alarm and automatic fire suppression systems for a wide range of hazard classifications found within most building types. BNK also provides onsite fire hydrant flow testing, which provides critical data for the design of plumbing and fire sprinkler systems within buildings. Our services include feasibility studies, preliminary design, preparation of construction plans and specifications, construction management, and contract administration. These services are offered to architects, building owners, industry, and contractors.
