All buildings require some degree of fire protection systems, and obtaining the permit to install those systems requires approval by the Authority Having Jurisdiction, but did you know that in Massachusetts, local fire departments are empowered to require the Owner to retain the services of a 3rd party plans examiner for the review of permit documents, submittals, witnessing of tests and assistance with inspections?  Maurice Pilette is a licensed FPE who’s provided such consultant services to fire departments throughout the State though his company Mechanical Designs Ltd.  In addition to being a member of nearly every fire protection professional organization out there, Maurice has sat on several Boards which authored code text for NFPA 4, 5, 13 and 14.  He’s a licensed sprinkler contractor, a certified Building Official, a teacher at Northeastern, a fire systems commission agent, and an expert witness.  He’s chaired the State Fire Safety Commission, State Building Code Appeals Board, State Bureau of Sprinkler Contractors and the Fire Marshals designee to the Building Code Board.
