These buildings contain occupancies ranging from computer labs to research labs to lecture theatres to recreational facilities; each type and variation presents specific fire protection and life safety challenges.
These facilities require hazard-specific fire protection systems and need effective plans to quickly and safely evacuate large numbers of people.

Engineering Fire Safe Educational Facilities
Providing acceptable fire safety in educational buildings often requires performance-based solutions (e.g., timed egress studies and modeling fire and smoke spread) to address unique building designs and uses. PLC has extensive experience designing fire protection solutions for educational occupancies, so we’re familiar with their unique needs and challenges.
We also recognize that many educational institutions have buildings of historic value, and we have helped preserve these facilities for continued use by demonstrating that current objectives for fire safety can be met.
