Fire alarm systems need to be replaced every 15 to 30 years. Technology and building codes change constantly. What was acceptable 20 years ago may not be acceptable today.
Whether a fire alarm system replacement is voluntary for reliability or forced by system failure, owners want to limit the project costs while maintaining compliance with regulations. The required extent of upgrades can be difficult to determine. Fire alarm system replacement may also affect other building systems such as sprinklers, smoke control (HVAC), security, and elevators, or affect non-compliant building conditions.
The staff at SenezCo have decades of experience in fire protection systems design and construction contract administration. We can take a project from initial assessment and decision-making through design, bid, and construction. We know the codes and standards, and we know the equipment and the contractors.
SenezCo specialize in existing fire alarm system replacements and upgrades in commercial, industrial, institutional, and residential buildings. Contact us for a fire alarm system assessment report that could help avoid unwanted expenses during the replacement process, and help gain owners’ approval for the project.
