When designing generator systems, engineers must ensure that the generators and the building electrical systems they support are appropriate for the application. Many questions must be addressed before starting the generator system design.
During a fire, emergency egress and illumination systems can make the difference between life and death. Effective design, specification, and lifecycle management can optimize the lifespan effectiveness of these life safety systems and enhance their performance during evacuation.
Project management, documentation management, and data-transfer activities within the construction industry are continuously becoming more reliant on advanced digital technology. Documentation delivery and communication protocols are now digital, and many are online. The expectation of having the ability to access the most current information from anywhere has never been greater.
As the world's population continues to grow and our cities and suburbs expand, with more buildings to accommodate the growth, we are facing a major challenge to manage and protect our valuable water resources. This is becoming especially critical under the added pressure of climate change.
As with all life safety systems, maintaining power to the key elements of a building in the event of an emergency is vital to the safety of the building and its occupants. For buildings that do not have an adequate supply pressure from the incoming water source, the fire pump is critical in that protection.
