Guest and Staff Safety
The hospitality industry is entrusted with providing a safe place for its guests and staff. In order to keep occupants safe, hospitality facilities need robust fire detection systems, fire suppression systems, and evacuation plans to address the risk of fires. Simultaneously, security considerations revolve around access control to prevent unauthorized entry, surveillance systems to monitor common areas, and trained security personnel to respond to incidents promptly.
Hospitality establishments have valuable assets, including the physical property and its contents. These assets need protection from fires, vandalism, theft, damage, unauthorized access, and other potential threats.
In order to avoid legal and regulatory compliance issues, hospitality businesses must adhere to fire codes, safety regulations, and security industry-best standards. This includes fire safety and security inspections, accessibility requirements, and health and safety regulations compliance.
Preventing fires and security breaches helps hospitality establishments continue operating smoothly, even in the face of unexpected incidents.
Fire Alarm Design
TEC’s fire protection engineers can design fire alarm systems, including sensors, alarms, and control panels, to detect fires and allow occupants and emergency responders to respond effectively. Our experts’ designs incorporate local building and fire code compliance as well as integration with other fire suppression and detection systems.
Fire Suppression System Design
TEC provides design services for a variety of fire suppression systems, including fire sprinkler systems, foam-water suppression systems, low and high-expansion foam systems, and aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF) system replacement. Our team will assess the needs of our client and the local regulations to determine which suppression system would be the most effective.
Jurisdictional & Code Compliance
TEC’s fire protection consultants specialize in the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) code, International Building Code (IBC), and International Fire Code (IFC), as well as local jurisdictional requirements. We use this expertise to help our clients comply with all relevant codes and standards. TEC collaborates with authority having jurisdictions (AHJs) to verify building safety and compliance with fire regulations.
Life Safety Analysis
TEC offers life safety analysis of the site, including fire department access, amenities, identification and correction of deficiencies in egress, such as noncompliant paths and appropriate exit signage, proper fire extinguisher provisions, and fire hose locations.
TEC designs access control systems, which are the main managers of security technology systems, including doors, intrusion detection devices, identity management systems, and more. Our access control services include designing systems that provide management of doors and intrusion detection devices and provide identity management based on authorization privileges established at implementation and modified when needed. They can be unified or integrated with video systems.
TEC’s security consultants will work with clients to quantify and identify their unique security needs. We will evaluate the existing operational, architectural, and technical elements, and make risk mitigation recommendations tailored to our clients’ unique needs. After performing the assessment, our team will provide a report with recommendations on how to improve security for your occupants and property.
Security System Integration
TEC can integrate security systems with fire protection and life safety systems for a unified approach to safety and security. Security, life safety, and fire protection systems utilize various methods and protocols to communicate with staff and first responders. Our team of integration experts can unify these systems into a cohesive solution that best serves the needs of the client.
TEC’s security team specializes in incorporating video surveillance into your facility’s security program. Cameras can provide real-time visual information about movement in your facilities. TEC utilizes sophisticated features, such as object detection and artificial intelligence, to deliver an efficient video management program. We also design our video management systems to allow authorized individuals, such as emergency responders, to view real-time video in order to respond when an incident occurs.
