The Harrington Group

We have called upon Harrington Group to assist us in providing bid documents, interpreting codes, inspecting contractor’s work and most importantly, negotiating with local Fire Departments which Harrington Group does with confidence and knowledge. Due to the success we have had in our relationship with Harrington Group, when we are faced with a particular difficult fire protection problem (which seem to be more numerous every year) Harrington Group comes to mind first. — Joseph J.
