Fire Protection Systems

Fire protection design includes three distinct disciplines.  The first discipline addresses the initial steps in building design which requires the evaluation of the applicable codes and standards and integrating these requirements in the building system design.

The second discipline addresses the piping for delivering the water suppression medium through the distribution system to the protected areas.


The third discipline is the electrical systems for smoke and fire detection and alarms.  LEA designs modern fire protection systems which incorporate a combination of these systems to meet code requirements and addresses specific hazards.

Our experience includes:

  • Innovative solutions to complex fire hazards
  • Use of computer generated hydraulic calculations
  • Thoroughness of design information provided to the contractors

LEA has extensive experience in the installation of sprinkler systems in existing buildings, and designs for new facilities.  A number of projects completed by our fire protection staff have addressed the integrations of new sprinkler systems into historic landmarks which contain many architecturally sensitive locations.
