Fire Alarm System Design

Fire By Design provides high quality fire alarm system designs that strictly comply with the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) code. In addition to fire alarms, we design voice evacuation and communication systems for buildings which require such engineering per jurisdictional code, particularly in the City of Chicago.

Our capabilities in the City of Chicago include the design of Class I, Class II, High Rise, Non-Jurisdictional, as well as One-Way and Two-Way Voice Ordinance fire alarm and voice evacuation systems.

Fire By Design also has experience with the design of fire alarm systems throughout the United States. We possess the capability of handling corporate accounts outside the State of Illinois.

Life Safety Consulting & Design

In addition to fire alarm system design, our company has experience in the field of life safety consulting and design. In compliance with the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) code, Fire By Design creates life safety drawings which include:

  • Emergency Lights
  • Egress Signage
  • Egress Planning
  • Fire Extinguisher Layouts
  • Mass Notification Systems
  • Building Surveys & Evaluations

    If you do not possess floor plans of your building, there's nothing to worry about. Our staff is well-trained in conducting building surveys and evaluating your building on-site to determine the extent of protection that will be needed.

    While on-site, our designers will produce highly accurate drawings of your building in AutoCAD, no matter the size of the structure.

    Submittal Packages

    Once we have completed our extensive design process, we will assemble submittal packages that will be given to fire alarm contractors for bidding purposes. Included in these submittal packages are a working set of plans, as well as specification packets which include:

  • Cover Page
  • Cut Sheets
  • Battery Calculations
  • Voltage Drop Calculations
  • Detector & Module Point Lists
