Fire sprinklers are a necessity in any commercial building to help protect the inhabitants and the property. These simple devices are inexpensive to install, yet they provide a blanket of security around the building. Fire sprinklers are fast acting and often extinguish the fire with minimal smoke, fire, and water damage to the property. Let's examine in more depth how fire sprinklers work to help protect your investment.

Most of us understand that many aspects of society still rely on oil and natural gas, but you may not realize the process of transporting them into and throughout a large facility. From chemical plants to food processing plants, most industrial facilities require professional process piping systems. These systems are used to transport materials, such as liquid and gas, however some systems are equipped to transport slurry and powders. Process piping is the safest way to transport these fluids and gases across manufacturing facilities.

Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems provide building heating and cooling, and more modern-day HVAC systems are starting to use hydronic piping to provide newly constructed buildings’ heating and cooling needs. For this type of work, two main system configurations are possible: two-pipe systems or four-pipe systems.

In working to make buildings as energy efficient as possible, Gausman & Moore recognizes the importance of implementing water-saving initiatives. It is crucial that water conservation is an essential part of a facility’s energy management plan. Various plumbing design strategies allow our engineers to create energy efficient plumbing and piping systems to help conserve water. These will greatly reduce the amount of water consumed at any given facility, which will also lower energy bills.
