Fire suppression and standpipe systems are critical life safety elements in very tall buildings. As these buildings go higher above the ground, the design of these systems requires astute technical oversight and consideration.

The commissioning and integrated testing of a building’s fire protection and life safety systems benefit the building owner and its occupants by validating the intended system design, installation, performance and operation.
