Fire Protection

Reliable Protection When and Where You Need It

Protecting client investments is important to McKinstry, so identifying the right protection system to prevent or reduce fire damage is fundamental to every project we undertake. McKinstry’s fire protection professionals specialize in complex mechanical projects for which space allocations are critical, system function is mandated, and both schedule control and acceleration are required.

McKinstry has built a national reputation for designing and installing fire protection systems for a wide variety of venues – from office, retail, and hotel buildings to stadiums, laboratories, and museums. Owners and designers come to McKinstry for our expertise on systems, costs, and knowledge of all current fire codes and compliance standards for the National Fire Protection Association.
