Heritage buildings are national treasures. These buildings typically have unique fire protection challenges, which may need to be addressed in ways quite different from those used in other more modern structures.
Heritage buildings were constructed in eras where building and fire codes did not exist or were not as rigorous as today's codes and standards. Combustible materials were more often used in the construction of these buildings. Life safety systems protecting these buildings and their occupants were limited and unlikely to meet today’s standards.
PLC Fire Safety Solutions has extensive experience in retrofitting Heritage buildings. Our staff of seasoned professionals can do so in a manner that maximizes public safety and property conservation while minimizing the impact on the historical value of the building.
