Hayden Engineers provide structural assessments and observations of fire escapes to satisfy the City of Portland. Portland alone has hundreds of fire escapes that are attached the exterior of older buildings. Many of these fire escapes have been left unchecked over the years, and now may be unsafe for occupants and firefighters to use during an emergency, as well as become a liability for property owners.
City of Portland has worked for years on the forefront of addressing the need to certify a standard of safety for occupants and fire crews across the hundreds of fire escapes in the city. More recently, state and local jurisdictions across Oregon and Washington have begun to adopt similar provisions in their local fire codes to address the same need.
The Hayden team has worked with Portland Bureau of Development Services, property owners, contractors, and testing agencies on a number of projects around the city that have been re-certified under Portland Administrative Rule ARB-FIR-2.08.
Hayden Engineers understand that time is of the essence and that fines from the Portland Fire and Rescue could be assessed if the fire escape certification is not completed in a timely fashion. We are able to quickly make the structural assessment so that the testing and repairs can be done.
