In addition to the qualities that define Sparc, we excel in the areas of technical excellence, responsiveness and relationships with the NYC Authorities. Sparc engineers are regularly engaged in the design, evaluation and testing of fire alarm systems. As licensed professional engineers, we understand the applicable codes, the requirements for these systems and the basis behind the code requirements. As such, we provide value to the team by being able to discuss the technical aspects of these systems with the FDNY as well as help the team to troubleshoot a challenge that arises.
Having a consultant who is responsive is a valuable asset to any project team. Sparc understands how critical it is to be available to witness a fire alarm test or answer a question to avoid a project delay. For this project, responsiveness is most critical throughout the FDNY scheduling and testing portion in order to complete the project on schedule and allow for the issuance of the Temporary Certificate of Occupancy. We’ve provided this service for many clients across a number of vertical markets and our responsiveness puts the team in a position to succeed.
Based upon our extensive experience in New York City and providing these services for other clients, we have developed relationships with key personnel at the New York City Fire Department. From inspection scheduling to discussing fire alarm system deficiencies, the ability to address a fire alarm challenge directly with decision-makers at the FDNY is invaluable. Communicating with the leaders or supervisors in the Inspection Unit or Bureau of Fire Prevention can mean the difference between being on schedule and missing a project deadline. Sparc has the relationships which allow this communication to occur.
