Systems Commissioning

Acceptance testing of a fire protection system at the conclusion of construction is but one part of a complete fire protection quality assurance process. Commissioning is more comprehensive and is critically important as it prescribes quality assurance criteria that ensure systems will function as intended as well as meet the operational goals of your building during its life-cycle. Telgian Corporation will partner with you from project conception through building occupancy to analyze design intent to ensure that fire protection systems operate, as intended, when they’re needed most. Telgian engineers and consultants utilize real-world experience to effect a seamless transition to building occupancy and offer you peace of mind knowing that your fire protection systems have been evaluated by the leaders in the industry.

Mass Notification

Ensuring that accurate information is delivered to the right people at the right time is essential to the mitigation of threats common in our world today.  The proper design coordination, installation and commissioning of mass notification systems requires the specific expertise of trained professionals.  Before commissioning a mass notification system, Telgian’s experts review of all aspects of the system design, installation, environment and interconnections as a means to ensure functional and compliant systems are installed for all applications.

Smoke Control Systems

Telgian’s expert engineers and consultants have specific experience performing smoke control system commissioning in a wide variety of occupancies.  Our team begins its assessment of any smoke control system with a thorough review of system design, purpose, objectives, calculations, equipment specifications, activation and operation logic.  We also evaluate or create commissioning procedures for suitability in your specific-built environment. Preliminary inspections of system-dependent passive protection features, and ultimately, operational testing of the smoke control system and sub-systems, is completed to ensure that physical performance of the system is executed as designed.
