Fire protection

Responsible planning for critical systems

PAE’s fire protection services are focused on early identification of fire protection needs that can help a project design stay on track with its cost, sustainability, and timeframe goals. We seamlessly integrate systems vital to the health and life safety of building occupants with the mechanical, plumbing, and electrical systems. PAE also offers related services such as field verification and inspection of fire protection systems.
