Overview

When a fire occurs, fire and life safety and security systems take on a new level of importance. They must operate at their peak performance in order to protect lives and enable business continuity. Our building inspection services help ensure that your equipment and systems are functioning properly and meet the requirements specified in applicable local and national building, fire and energy installation codes.

Specifically, our building inspections result in comprehensive reports that building owners, developers, managers and architects use to identify building compliance gaps and to guide improvements that provide confidence that fire and life safety and security systems will operate properly in the event of a fire. For local authorities, a UL building inspection report provides added confidence that fire and life safety and security products and systems have been properly inspected to the rigorous requirements of the local or national code requirements.

Our inspections assess and identify compliance improvement needs for the following:  installed sprinklers, pumps, fire detection and alarm systems, fire doors, fire extinguishers and more. Our inspections apply to commercial, institutional and industrial buildings.

Benefits

Our building inspection services help identify critical fire, life safety and security building improvements needed to achieve code compliance with the ultimate goal of achieving fire, life safety and security of the building.

Our extensive knowledge of applicable codes and installation of fire and life safety systems can help you gain the knowledge you need to establish optimized maintenance of your buildings and facilities. This leads to safer and more efficient operations.

While some building owners conduct self-assessments of their buildings, a UL building inspection delivers added benefits:

  • Provides peace of mind that fire and life safety systems have been rigorously and objectively inspected
  • Demonstrates a commitment to safety to occupants, insurers and local authorities
  • Delivers information to make informed decisions about improvements needed to achieve code compliance
  • Provides a complete, thorough inspection report that can reduce the time spent by authorities conducting periodic building inspections
