Installing a Fire Protection System in your existing building is the best option you can take to protect your people, property, and products in the event of a fire. Oliver Fire Protection & Security can develop a Master Plan to help you understand what is involved in having your building retrofitted with a Fire Protection system. Master planning provides an owner with an assessment of the costs and details associated with the installation of Life Safety systems. With the information we provide, you can begin to prepare a budget, develop a schedule with a phased process, determine the scope of work, and identify best practices for installing Fire Sprinkler and Fire Alarm systems within your existing facility. Whether your site is a hospital, nursing/assisted living facilities, commercial building, residential building, industrial facility, educational campuses, or student housing, we’ve got you covered.
Master Planning – What is it?
Our Master Plans provide owners with a comprehensive analysis and recommendations for installing a 100% economical and code-compliant Fire Protection system within your existing building(s). Our teams will arrive on-site to perform an analysis of your building(s) and assess its size, shape, interior layout, and construction types. We will then identify the occupancies, hazard types, strategies for installation, and determine the best and most practical approaches to custom-fit each building with a new Life Safety system.
