Tikva offers a full range of building and fire code consulting services designed to fit the needs of developers, owners, and architects. Code consulting services are vital components to providing the occupants of all buildings, both public and private, with a safe environment that meets today’s standards. We not only cover all applicable codes and design features; we also meet the challenges of aesthetics, functionality, and cost efficiency.
Traditional code compliance sets the prescriptive criteria for a baseline level of safety which, for many clients, is a perfect fit for their fire protection needs. Our engineers have the ability to help clients achieve this level of safety and also to incorporate special design features where strict code compliance may not provide the most appropriate design solution. Our in-depth code knowledge and experience allows us to resolve the toughest code issues. Through equivalencies, alternate methods, or performance-based analysis and designs, we are able to capture the essential needs of the client while meeting the intent of code compliance.
