Chemical Processing Buildings
Clausen Engineers offers feasibility, planning, design and permit procurement services to clients who store, compound, blend or otherwise handle hazardous, combustible and flammable materials. We commonly review client’s current operation and consult on potential compliance, tenant improvement, relocation, or new facility design, taking consideration of several building and fire code requirements.
We categorize flammable, combustible and corrosive occupancies and design manufacturing and warehouse storage facilities containing hazardous, flammable, and combustible materials. We design and calculate secondary containment, ventilation, drainage, fire separation, and protection systems.
We often establish a clear baseline from which an existing or new facility can legally operate and then coordinate all levels of permit approvals with our time tested methodologies. For example, we provide permit application drawing sets which clearly and decisively detail our design elements within established code demands. We represent our clients in face-to-face meetings throughout the plan review process with both building and fire officials. Then we get the final design bid and built competitively. We become your ‘turn-key’ Engineer Of Record.
Notably, we have often been successful in responding to non-conformance citations, long-term implementation phasing, alternate method requests and other considerations given our compelling interpretations of the code supporting the application of our client’s unique operational demands.
