FireWise Consultants is a one of a kind consulting firm that focuses on the Passive Fire Protection industry. We were formed to offer an innovative hands on approach to the design, implementation and review of buildings while streamlining all stages of a project to ensure the project is completed to the highest standard. We offer an unbiased professional time savings system that allows a firm to have a single point of contact to help point out unforeseen issues and solve problems in an accelerated manner. Along with this, we want to collaborate with the entire design, construction and inspection team to create a successful chain of communication so all parties understand changes as they come about. FireWise Consultants can offer ways to take the lead in Passive Fire Protection issues and coordinate the communication of the team while obtaining solutions to eliminate added time spent by other parties. Listed below are a few of the many areas we have found ways to save time and money on projects:
Offering assistance and coordination with design and specification writing to ensure you are implementing the correct details and products per code requirements on the documents.
Plan review to ensure your bids are accurate and call out any unforeseen areas to limit the amount of change orders and delays in the future.
Review obstacles to give an unbiased review of multiple product and manufacturer's solutions to limit Engineering Judgments. If required, we can assist in obtaining Engineering Judgments and properly formatting them per each jurisdiction's requirements.
Work with the Authority Having Jurisdiction to review documents and changes to plans to ensure their confidence along with answering any code interpretation questions they may have (e.g.: When are T Ratings required, where are putty pads required, etc.)
Taking the lead when new issues arise to limit the amount of companies and contacts that are involved. Offer an evaluation of multiple manufacturers' solutions if needed to allow the team to decide on the most efficient choice.
Review RFI's, Change Orders, Submittals and Bids to offer best solution and expedited answers.
These are only a few of the many areas we see ways time and money can be saved. Please contact us for a meeting to discuss how we can create a customized plan based on your situation and needs. You may also want to review the other services outlined in the links below.
