Plan & Code Review The firm has been providing Plan and Code Review since 1980s, having served the Philadelphia High Rise Fire Board and Licensing and Inspection. Our cross training of engineering disciplines allows a thorough platform for protection and continuity of operations even under the most serious natural or man-made events.

Life and Property Safety ❖❖Fire and smoke detection, containment, and suppression systems are the first line of defense in today’s building codes. No era in history has so remarkably changed the expectations and actions demanded of our fire protection, smoke and fire alarm systems, water pumps, emergency lighting, and exiting signage systems. Demands of code enforcement require a thorough and practical knowledge of systems, operation, and human interaction to demonstrate full compliance with legislative acts that bind a community with safe construction practices. ❖❖Electrical systems and subsystems, power generation, grounding, and lightning protection systems now present enormous undertakings for the typical agency or department that has the knowledge, but lacks the manpower, to thoroughly inspect for unpredictable emergency events. It is just these events that challenge chances of blackouts and power losses at a site where personal safety is of utmost importance. Mechanical Standards and Regulations ❖❖Compliance with ASHRAE, NSA, local codes, and health standards predicates planning, evaluation, and support for smooth construction compliance. Especially difficult to analyze are control systems that can promote harmful or even fatal bacteriological or environmental conditions in buildings that had too little inspection by knowledgeable, trained technicians. Individual team members apply best practices to minimize the probability of conditions leading to restricted occupancy or closure.

Alameda County Juvenile Justice Center

Commissioning & Authority Services San Leandro, California

The new 379,000 sq. ft. juvenile justice center was designed to achieve LEED Gold Certification. The commissioning on this project represented the necessity to conform the Owner’s original program, the design/builder’s solution, and the vendor’s integration. PSE personnel were in full time attendance during peak test and conformance periods.

Professional Systems Engineering, LLC provided commissioning and authority services for this new $130 million juvenile justice center. This facility is comprised of a 360-bed detention center, with 180 Medium Security beds, 90 Maximum Security beds, and 90 Special Population beds, as well as court facilities and administration offices. In order to verify the functionality of the building security systems, a final testing plan was implemented. The methodology of the plan was based upon standard operational activities that would be expected within the building to assure security systems would respond as designed. The commissioning methodology was focused upon functionality of the security system. Functionality Testing Plans included: ❖❖Walk-thru of the facility from exterior entrance through the booking process to placement of a resident in a bedroom ❖❖Verification of CCTV and intercom systems ❖❖Special condition simulations for resident transfer process and system interlocks ❖❖Systems testing performed on wireless and hardwired duress, Watch Tour, video retrieval, unintererruptible power supply (UPS) and alarm reporting systems ❖❖Review of system testing documentation and follow-up on failed test items Final Court Testing Plans included: ❖❖Simulation of operational requirements from arrival at sallyport for hearing to holding area, and escort to courtrooms ❖❖Simulation of a hearing room duress condition ❖❖Review of critical operational punchlists for commissioning ❖❖Testing for security systems validation

Bridgeport Superior Court & Center for Juvenile Matters Court Security Consulting & Engineering Services Bridgeport, Connecticut

This project provides for the design and construction of a new courts, administrative and juvenile facility to include about 89,000 SF of courtroom, housing, and program space. The new facility will be fully selfcontained and designed to be state-of-the-art. The program budget is approximately $36 million.

Professional Systems Engineering, LLC applied two key philosophies in the design of the security systems. The first was the concept of simple operational security. The system design focused on not only providing the best level of security but also stresses a “simple to operate” and “easy to maintain system.” PSE believes that if systems are not easy to operate, these systems will not be fully implemented. The end result of a complex security system could be a breakdown in a facility’s overall level of security. Our second key philosophy was the design of integrated systems. Modern security systems incorporate a collection of subsystems. Traditionally, these systems would each be an independent standalone system. The system provided for in this project will call for each subsystem to be interfaced in a manner that will allow the system to share information and automatically respond to events. Technologies ❖ IP security system ❖ PLC system control in holding cells, segregated from courthouse access control system ❖ Monitoring and controlled access systems ❖ Card access protection ❖ Elevator and secure corridor protection ❖ Digital television surveillance ❖ Weapons detection and package screening

❖ Interior building security for door
