ANALYSIS

life safety & fire protection systems analysis

Mekenzen’s professional fire protection specialists offer thoughtfully engineered solutions addressing alternative means and methods or code alternates for fire safety analysis and verifying the provisions of applicable codes and standards in the field such as egress and fire protection analysis, fire and smoke modeling, fire-resistive construction classifications, and risk assessment, applying our breadth of knowledge and 20+ years experience with fire protection engineering and life safety principles.

Mekenzen is a leading provider of fire protection services in Saudi Arabia • Lebanon • Kuwait • UAE • Qatar • Bahrain • Oman

means of egress

The most important part in life safety, which should be properly designed to ensure safe egress and within calculated period from the most remote area or space in the building to the exit discharge, taking into consideration the building classifications, hazard classification, occupant load, egress capacity, allowable travel distance, arrangement of exits, illumination, etc…

smoke control

Mekenzen specialists will Verify that mechanical and passive smoke control systems are specified where required and are designed by qualified persons to the appropriate standards.

building construction

Ensure the project addresses building code requirements related to fire-resistance-rated construction provisions, while maintaining the aesthetics of your unique design. This includes assistance with engineering judgements for joints and penetrations of fire-rated assemblies.

risk assessment

Provide expert consultation with regard to design and implementation of effective fire systems and life safety systems which ensure that building code and fire code provisions are appropriately addressed and hazards are mitigated.

MEANS OF EGRESS

Fire Safety Analysis

MEANS OF EGRESS

egress analysis

Occupant evacuation strategy must consider building design and fire protection features in addition to the mobility of its occupants, their behavioral characteristics, and the levels of evacuation training that are provided.
Mekenzen fire safety specialists will review and verify the following:
Verify that emergency and standby power is provided for systems egress and occupant safety, and are listed for the specified use.
Verify that egress doors are provided where required, are of adequate size, swing, fire protection rating, and compliance of panic or fire exit hardware.
Verify that stairs, ramps, and balconies comply with code requirements, including rise/run of steps, width, length, guards, rails, and landings.
Verify that the egress route complies with code requirements for width, clearances, maximum travel distance, fire protection, illumination, and signage.
Verify that any dead-end corridors comply with code requirements.
Verify that the building and its windows and roof are accessible for emergency access by the fire department.
Verify stairway access to the roof when required by code, with street-level signage.
Verify that the site plan specifies location of premise identification and, when required, fire-department key boxes.
Verify that posting of signage for hazardous materials is specified on the plans where required.
Verify that protective barriers are specified where necessary for the safety of emergency personnel.
Verify that building elements that may be hazardous to emergency personnel are identified.

smoke control

Mekenzen specialists will Verify that mechanical and passive smoke control systems are specified where required and are designed by qualified persons to the appropriate standards.
Checking the classification of smoke proof enclosures and verifying the requirements of pressurization system, stairway vestibules access, natural ventilation, floor smoke exhaust, etc…
Checking the classification of atrium space and the requirements of smoke control system verifying the fresh air flow-rate, exhaust flow-rate and air velocity ensuring high level of smoke layers and safe means of egress.

CONSTRUCTION CLASSIFICATIONS

Fire Safety Analysis

CONSTRUCTION CLASSIFICATIONS

fire resistive construction

The building code and fire code establish the minimum requirements for fire-resistive construction. However, these prescriptive requirements often fail to support many of the unique design features utilized in today’s construction. Mekenzen’s fire protection engineers utilize their combined experience and expertise to ensure that your project addresses building code requirements related to fire-resistance-rated construction provisions, while maintaining the aesthetics of your unique design. This includes assistance with engineering judgments for joints and penetrations of fire-rated assemblies.
Our fire protection engineers offer specialized expertise to design and assist you in implementing unique solutions that maintain your project goals while ensuring that building code and fire code provisions are appropriately applied, and hazards are mitigated. These solutions are always based on sound engineering, the required building codes, fire codes, and other standards, and industry best practices.

RISK ASSESSMENT

Fire Safety Analysys

RISK ASSESSMENT

risk assessment

The building code and fire code establish the minimum requirements for providing a reasonable level of property protection and fire and life safety for occupants, in addition to fire fighters and emergency responders. Mekenzen surveys and reviews facilities to assess compliance with applicable building codes, fire codes, and standards, and identifies appropriate levels of fire and life safety. Our fire protection engineers also evaluate processes, systems and programs in order to identify and define hazardous conditions and risks for the purpose of their elimination or control. Mekenzen examines the systems, subsystems, components, and interrelationships to identify and quantify exposures. Our fire protection engineers provide expert consultation with regard to design and implementation of effective fire and life safety systems which ensure that building code and fire code provisions are appropriately applied, and hazards are mitigated.
Our risk assessment is based on sound engineering, the building codes, fire codes, and other standards, and industry best practices. Consideration is given to the rate of fire spread, its intensity and duration, expected performance of materials, equipment and systems, and emergency response. Finally, we consider the impact to continued business operations and exposures resulting in business interruption.
