The Harrington Group

I write this letter to you, without being solicited by you to do so, and solely out of an abundance of respect for the professional services which you skillfully performed for my client…I recently contacted Harrington Group, Inc. because of its expertise in fire protection consulting and its reputation nationwide. — C. Grainger Bowman, Kirkpatrick & Lockhart Nicholson Graham LLP

Negotiation of Alternatives

In the context of negotiating alternatives, Harrington Group works with an AHJ (Authority Having Jurisdiction). With regard to Property Loss Control activities this usually refers to the insurance carrier, but can also mean public agencies such as state and local building and fire departments. The Property Loss Control engineer carries out negotiations on behalf of the client. These are often successful because the engineer is a specialist who understands the terminology and objectives important to the AHJ. It is particularly important that the engineer become involved early in the process. This helps ensure that negotiations begin before the AHJ has issued a position in writing. Once a position is in writing, it is difficult for the AHJ to revise it or retract it even if the reason for doing so is sound.

Harrington Group has been highly successful in developing and negotiating acceptance by the AHJ of creative, cost effective property loss control solutions.
