As qualified firestop inspectors through Intertek’s Qualified Personnel (IQP) Program, we are trained to ensure that firestops are compliant to the 2012 International Building Code that requires special inspection of firestopping for buildings over 75 feet in height, and category III and IV buildings (Chapter 17, section 1705.16 of the IBC).
As a part of this elite program, we separate ourselves from other firestop inspectors through the process of on-going training, regular third party audits, and the backing of Intertek. This adds value to the inspections we perform and makes us a trusted ally to AHJs.

Intertek partnered with the International Firestop Council (IFC) to develop the program. This program was built on the foundation of IFC’s firestop training program, which takes a comprehensive look at the knowledge necessary for firestop inspectors. Upon successful completion of the training program, we were then eligible to take additional steps and become certified through Intertek.
Acceptance – The growth of the Firestop IQP Program along with its affiliation to Intertek gives us recognition and acceptance with authorities having jurisdiction across the country.
Auditing – As part of the program, our work is independently audited by Intertek.  The oversight from the auditing process helps ensure the quality of the inspections and helps us differentiate our services from the rest.

Inspection/ Audit Reports

As qualified firestop inspectors our experts are trained to ensure that firestops are compliant to the 2012 International Building Code per ASTM E2174 & ASTM E2393, which requires a high level third party special inpection of firestopping for buildings over 75 feet in height, and category III and IV buildings (Chapter 17, section 1705.16 of the IBC). We are also your advocate, helping with code analysis, data photo reporting and validation. We create a compliance dashboard to give you an accurate assessment of the current state of your facility and provide a plan of remediation, if necessary, to get you on track to full compliance.


Preliminary & Detailed Design

Our multi-faceted approach takes all variables into account at the beginning of a project, saving you time and ensuring all components work together to support the code. We review preliminary designs with the project team and supply costing information to facilitate planning. Our knowledge about all available firestop products and materials yields more options to create a fully compliant system that preserves the fire-resistance ratings by impeding the spread of fire through through fire-rated building joints and penetrations in fire-rated assemblies.


Plan & Specification Review

Our modern document storage system keeps all records available at all times. When we perform surveys and update your building’s CAD plans, we produce a detailed inventory containing all firestops and related drawings to show location and certification for every installed component. Accurate reports are used for any future repair necessary and essential in meeting fire code requirements.


Quality Control & Maintenance

As a leading figure in the formation of firestop regulations, we develop quality control plans with sub-trades and review materials before and after installation, based on ASTME 2174 and 2393. We provide an electronic inventory of existing schedules, tag all current installations, create as-built drawings and upgrade and/or retag new installations, assisting owner on annual maintenance budget.


Engineering Judgment Review

Our team of engineers reviews engineering judgments and provides an engineering analysis letter with approval stamp and signature by a certified Professional Engineer (PE).
