The protection of cultural and historical buildings is of the utmost importance. For these types of buildings, the protection against fire represents a priority, considering that historical buildings and artworks have been destroyed or severely damaged through time due these events. JENSEN HUGHES srl has developed a great experience in this field both in the design of fire protection for monumental buildings as well as for the transformation of heritage buildings to accommodate commercial activities.
Our team of experienced engineers can help clients to achieve satisfactory levels of safety and to incorporate special design features where strict code compliance may not provide the most appropriate design solution. For example, fire alarm and fire protection systems need to be carefully evaluated, and special attention should be given to areas that are not constantly attended, or where the collateral damage possibly caused by extinguishing agents could be considered counterproductive.
