Joseph Igoe

Consultant

Joe enjoys assisting owners, architects, and contractors with developing an overall fire protection and life safety approach that optimizes building design to mitigate risk and loss of life and property. With that goal in mind, he specializes in third-party review of active and passive fire protection systems, including sprinkler and fire alarm/detection system designs and inspection of firestop and fire-resistant joint systems.

He is skilled at the evaluation of prescriptive-based compliance with local, state, and federal codes as well as the development of performance-based alternative approaches for unique fire protection and life safety situations. Joe’s deep knowledge of applicable fire protection and life safety codes allow him to develop novel approaches that meet the needs of clients. His portfolio includes projects for higher education, transportation facilities including airports, large assembly spaces, healthcare, high-rise buildings, hazardous materials, and mixed-use buildings.
