35 storey apartment building elevated above Emery Barnes Park in the heart of Vancouver.

Flow rate and pump efficiency are most important in a high rise tower. They effectively calculate the correct amount of pressure required and the system needed to flow enough water through as many sprinkler heads as required per floor, according to use of the space and occupancy of the building.

We are masterful at calculating these precise numbers for the builder to execute the correct system in place. Every urban area and its unique topography has a map of water flow rates from water supply sources that we work with for strategic hydraulic calculations.  We publish 100 page books of calculation data for some projects as required to meet building code or for our alternative solutions to the building code. We prove your water flow needs for life safety using the water resources available that are unique to each project site. This tower is one example of many high rise structures for which we determine life safety and fire protection.
