Fire Protection Engineering and Consulting Services

Fire Protection Engineering plays an increasingly significant role in today’s changing industries. An in-depth understanding of today’s codes, standards, and new technologies impacts the overall implementation cost of fire protection systems to clients.

VERTEX’ wholly owned subsidiary, Neptune Fire Protection Engineering LLC, offers a wide range of specialized services to address the requirements of our clients’ fire protection engineering and consulting needs. Our knowledgeable staff of fire protection engineers are experienced in providing fire protection solutions for a variety of client sectors including industrial, oil and gas, commercial, governmental, medical, residential, and many others.
