During the early design phase, it is of vital importance that a thorough understanding of the prevailing code which governs the design is made. This along with a good first estimate of a building’s electrical power requirements are key factors to a successful design. The governing code and estimates are honed and refined as the project develops to ensure an optimal and efficient design. Our Electrical Engineers work in close coordination with Architects and Mechanical Engineers to ensure a proper electrical distribution system is designed.

 
Fire Alarm Systems
Generally a fire alarm system is installed for protection of life and property. A fire alarm system must be able to perform the following functions:

  • Detect the presence of a fire.
  • Notify the occupants
  • Notify the fire department (usually through a central station connection)
  • Operate other fire safety functions, e.g., release magnetically held open smoke doors.

AEP provides a thorough review of the elements that make up a fire alarm system and how environmental and system conditions trigger various signals such as alarm, trouble, and supervisory signals; which are then used to initiate responses or behavior. AEP also focuses on power supply requirements and circuits that drive and connect the building blocks of fire alarm systems.
