Protection Development, Incorporated
Your reliable source for integrated fire protection engineering

Since our beginning in 1985, PDI has built a solid reputation for developing well-balanced cost-effective solutions to unique fire protection and code consulting issues in both business and industry. Fire protection and life safety features should not be considered an insignificant part of any project. Each facility presents its own complexities and characteristics to life safety and property protection. PDI draws on the varied experience of our staff to research each building and determine site-specific details. We understand the vital need for coordination with the architectural, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing aspects of building construction and how these systems integrate with the fire protection and life safety systems of a structure. PDI will also evaluate the fire department access and infrastructure needs. Most importantly, we will 
identify the most cost-effective solutions and prioritize corrective measures for optimal return on a fixed budget.

Why Choose PDI?

PDI is in the business of protecting lives and property through the practical application of fire engineering.

Projects don’t reach a successful conclusion by luck or by chance. Having a practiced and proficient team to complete necessary tasks works every time. In accordance with state law and accepted industry practice, structural, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineers are employed to insure a successful and safe building design. Similarly, a qualified fire protection engineer is essential for ensuring proper fire protection system design, code compliance, and providing competent construction administration. Registered FPE’s are the most qualified to design your life safety systems, to oversee their installation, and to resolve any problems during the design permitting and installation phases. Having PDI’s experienced engineers on your job from the outset increases efficiency and controls contractor costs. At PDI, we have the experience it takes to ensure the design is done right the first time. We know how important projects are to our clients, and we want to make the entire process, from design to inspection, as smooth as possible. When PDI is on your team, you can be sure that your fire protection, code consulting, and permit coordination needs are in good hands.
