Architects, Electrical Engineers, and Professional Engineers Invited to Review ESC’s Engineering Support Services | #ESC_LLC #Permit #Specification #Blueprint| “The job of putting together a set of specifications for construction projects is hard enough without all the fine details that goes into upgrades for fire alarms and other electronic systems,” says John Larkin, Senior Partner with ESC of Greater Ohio. “Let ESC do the preparatory work for you by visiting the job sites, taking inventory, and assuring that your specifications and blueprints provide the right information.” For more information, visit ESC’s Website at http://bit.ly/2JgZz2V, or call 614-754-1393.

One of the major problems associated with retrofit projects for an EE, PE, or an Architect is specifying the right add-on equipment with the existing control system. A good example of this is an existing commercial facility where there’s a conventional (non-addressable) fire alarm panel in place and due to a newly added addition the architect has the task of specifying the additional smoke detectors, duct detectors, manual fire pulls, and other equipment that’s required by local fire codes.
“If he assumes that the existing panel is addressable and he specifies addressable smoke detectors and other equipment–well, I’m sure you see the problem here,” says John Larkin, Senior Partner with ESC of Greater Ohio. “It’s absolutely imperative that the equipment that goes into the specification match that which is already in place.”
John Larkin launched the ESC Engineering Support Services Group to assist Architects, EE’s, and PE’s with this very issue. For more information, please call our office at 614-754-1393 or visit our ESSG Web page at http://bit.ly/2JgZz2V.
