Vested in Expertise

Fire protection is a highly specialized discipline within the Building Systems Engineering function and within its subcategory of Mechanical Systems. 

Over the past twenty-plus years, Mirenda has concentrated only on fire protection.  In this manner, we have developed both academic and hands-on experience to ensure adherence to appropriate building code and engineering standards as well as coordination with site conditions to optimize implementations.

Mirenda maintains memberships in the following professional bodies:

  • American Fire Specialists Association (AFSA)
  • National Fire Protection Association (NFPA)
  • Professional Engineers of Ontario (PEO)
  • Society of Fire Prevention Engineers (SFPE)
  • Association of Professional Engineers of British Columbia (APEG)

Pragmatic Solutions

Mirenda takes a very pragmatic approach to fire protection solutions.  There are three demanding criteria that must be met and balanced for every solution, design or product installation:

  1. Cost-effective configurations - to ensure that the owner(s)’ return on investment is protected and optimized. To ensure cost effective solutions, fire protection must be integrated in the overall building layout and must be coordinated with heating, air conditioning and ventilation (HVAC) and plumbing systems.
  2. Adherence to national and provincial building codes and National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standards - as well as an appreciation for insurance and Safety Inspectors’ preferences.
  3. Accurate and detailed design (including CAD) - this ensures efficient coordination on installations and maintenance.

Delivery of pragmatic solutions require an experienced understanding of all building systems combined with a thorough understanding of engineering practices as well as detailed knowledge of federal and provincial standards, practices and codes. 

The combination of this education and experience is rare – and it is Mirenda’s specialty. 

Highest Standards of Professional Integrity

Like many firms, Mirenda can provide services throughout the life cycle of building conception through construction. 

However, where a firm consults in conception design as well as provides design, installation, commissioning services and/or product sales there is risk (real and perceived) that this firm could benefit inappropriately from undue influence. 

To preserve professional integrity, Mirenda will work only on either the front end conception or the back end delivery phase of a given project.  

In exceptional circumstances, Mirenda will provide end-to-end services – however explicit, written consent of the building owner is required.
