Industrial Building Completes a Complex Multi-phase Renovation

This 37,000 square feet property was undergoing a renovation from the ground up. The two-levels building needed the design of as-built plans and the installation of a full fire sprinkler system that was tied into an existing system which was located in another area. The work would be completed at different times for different building levels – this required careful coordination with all subcontractors. Aura Fire safety team was successful in separating the fire department inspections so that the other subs could complete their jobs on time. This allowed the property owners to move forward with their tenant plans.

A Hotel Obtains Fire Sprinkler Title 19 Certification within 24 hours

The maintenance engineer for a 60-rooms Fisherman’s Wharf hotel in San Francisco needed prompt annual fire sprinklers and fire alarm certifications for his insurance. Within 24 hours Aura Fire Safety tested the systems, corrected minor system discrepancies per NFPA requirements and issued satisfactory test reports to a than happy manager.

Residential Fire Sprinkler solution helped save the backyard while staying true to fire code compliance

This was an unusual project that demonstrated the value and benefit of putting in a new fire sprinkler system instead of building a firewall. Aura Fire team worked closely with the homeowner and architect Kyle Brunel in designing an alternative method of fire safety compliance. And it worked! With a Variance and an Alternative Method of Compliance, different agencies came together: the building department, fire safety, and city planning. It was a significant endeavor to cut into the main road and put in an underground fire line with two backflow prevention devices; then connect everything into a code-compliant and visually appealing fire sprinkler system that ultimately created a safer home for three families.

Here is what Kyle Brunel says:

Aura Fire did what they said they were going to do. They delivered a great solution for us and they didn’t hit us with change orders as they handled the evolving design, paperwork, and permits. With Aura Fire, we were thinking outside the box. No longer did we have to build a firewall that would block the natural light and views for our next door neighbors and we did not require a large emergency-exit staircase that would have take up most of our backyard. Now our children can play in the backyard and I am growing blueberry bushes. I would definitely work with Aura Fire again.

A San Francisco School Meets Every Fire Safety Requirement

A Mission district school was in a tight pinch to install a new kitchen hood and a full fire suppression system while also getting all Life Fire Safety inspections in compliance. Scheduling was paramount, over Christmas break while the students and staff were away, we obtained all permits completed the kitchen hood system installation and also tested and certified the fire sprinkler system, fire alarm, fire extinguishers and the emergency lighting. By the time the school reopened after the holidays they were in total Life Fire Safety compliance. They have been in compliance ever since because Aura Fire now conducts their quarterly and annual certifications like clockwork. No city non-compliance notices on our watch!
