Great Southwestern Fire & Safety's fire alarm projects include a thorough on-site evaluation of existing facilities, or a blueprint and specification analysis of new construction projects. Our licensed fire protection consultants and design specialists work closely with owners, architects engineers, insurance companies and government agencies to develop a system that meets code requirements. They balance all design criteria with protection objectives, code compliance, budget requirements, and owner concerns.
