I am familiar and experienced in the application of a variety of high-pile related documents including NFPA 13 Installation of Sprinkler Systems, NFPA 20 Standard for the Installation of Stationary Pumps for Fire Protection, NFPA 30B Code for the Manufacture and Storage of Aerosol Products, and International Fire Code Chapter 23 High-Piled Combustible Storage. I am also familiar with legacy documents such as NFPA 231 Standard for General Storage, NFPA 231D Storage of Rubber Tires and Uniform Fire Code Chapter 81.

  • Acquiring a high-piled storage permit.
  • Evaluating storage configurations, sprinkler systems and water supply hydraulics.
  • Completing code evaluations of existing or planned warehouse facilities.
  • Interfacing with Fire Marshal's, Code Officials, insurance carriers and other Authorities Having Jurisdiction.
  • Developing alternative materials and methods to prescriptive code requirements.
  • Determining storage options and assisting clients in making educated business decisions based upon operational and economic considerations.
  • Developing design drawings and specification documents for warehouse facilities and sprinkler systems.
