Ino-Tek provides specialized hazardous materials engineering support for end-users, Architectural and Engineering firms and municipal governments across the United States.
Ino-Tek fills a GAP for each of these communities by leveraging our broad experience working with hazardous materials safety. End-users typically know better than anyone how they use the hazardous materials on site, but often lack knowledge about the Life Safety requirements contained in the Building and Fire Codes for their location. Architectural and Engineering firms usually have in-house fire safety expertise, but often lack Gas Detection, Leak Detection, and Life Safety expertise.
The International Building Code and its counterparts, the International Fire Code and the International Mechanical Code – have been adopted by every state in the United States. These codes designate Gas Detection and Leak Detection systems as Life Safety / Hazardous Material Emergency Alarm Systems that, in turn, are designated as Fire Protection Systems. These critical systems must comply with State Building and Fire Codes, as well as other applicable standards like those published by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and other industry standards and guidelines when appropriate.
By supplying this level of information, building officials can quickly perform plan reviews and provide building permit approvals with minimal delay.
When construction is complete, and the facility is ready for final inspection, Ino-Tek provides full commissioning and startup of the Life Safety/ Hazardous Material Emergency Alarm System. With the Fire Inspector on-site, we demonstrate all system functionality and complete all required documentation. This leads to quick acceptance and issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy.
Hazardous Material Opinion and Report
Our Senior Code Specialist for Hazardous Materials can assess if new construction or the addition of new materials will still meet the level of safety the codes and standards require.
