Service overview

We have a broad range of practical experience in dealing with code standards and the successful remediation for clients who come to us with code violations and code conflict resolution needs involving current low voltage equipment.

We will also provide code equivalency documentation for clients in the event of a code deficiency in which the code cannot be applied, or a circumstance cannot be rectified for some reason. In those instances where this is necessary, we will propose a request for the approval of alternative materials and methods to satisfy prescriptive codes as needed. Code equivalency can offer some flexibility in the design.

Details

Building codes represent the minimal standards of building life safety, regardless of the system type or occupancy type. As a result, systematic evaluation of the design and stringent attention to the application of codes and standards is an essential part of code compliance. We also offer codes and standards analysis and design criteria development. Furthermore, consultation and negotiation with building owners and authorities having jurisdiction (AHJ) can create a prevailing sense of cooperation which may expedite the project and secure AHJ approval.

Code safety is not necessarily extractable from the design, construction, installation, operation, inspection, testing, and maintenance of low voltage systems. DK Consulting applies the prescriptive life safety codes safety and standards as indicated required by the jurisdiction, whether they are local, city, state or national codes. Accuracy and detail are crucial components of code compliance and essential to avoid code violations.
