Commercial Fire Alarm in Beaumont, Lufkin, and Nederland

Renovations are an expected occurrence in the life of a commercial building. Whether the renovations are due to factors such as tenant changes or upgrades in an aging building, many facilities undergo renovations in response to the evolving needs of the facilities. This situation has increased as the economic environment has resulted in slower new construction in recent years. Repurposing buildings or adding on became a viable option when investments were scarce. But where there is construction in an existing building, there is risk of fire.

We've noticed an increasing number of reports of fires in commercial buildings undergoing renovations. A simple search online will demonstrate many fires in the U.S. over the last year. These buildings range from commercial office buildings to apartment buildings. Causes can range from an electrical problem to a spark caused by construction equipment, with these fires resulting in millions of dollars in damage. In many cases, the buildings were less likely to be occupied due to the fact that they were in the process of being renovated. Unfortunately, it’s a topic that doesn’t seem to get much attention. What are the causes for these fires?

According to one study, the leading causes of fires in buildings under construction were incendiary or suspicious (39.5%); open flame, embers or torches (20.8%); and heating equipment (9.7%). Regardless of the causes, fires started by any reason are devastating to the building and highly dangerous to the firefighters who put their lives at risk.
