How does the fire alarm system design work?
Our design process starts in the pre-construction phase, where we rely on bid documents and specifications to develop the best approach to your unique system. Once we have established a plan, we then begin to lay out the fire protection piping and sprinklers throughout the project using the fire sprinkler design software, AutoSPRINK. With this software, we have the capability for full BIM (Building Information Modeling) coordination to ensure a better fit with other trade contractors at the site.
"I have had the pleasure of working on several projects with Jackson and Associates at our plants in Sterling Heights. Beginning at design, Rick has been very helpful in providing technical guidance allowing us to lean down our installations without compromising on coverage, additionally; he has offered us good advice to help reduce cost with other contractors by educating us on the fire protection industry. The installation teams are courteous and understanding of our concerns in an active environment allowing for project completion with little to no impact on our production. Jackson and Associates have been able to provide competitive pricing and at least from our perspective have been able to beat the price of their peers. All said, they provide great value."
