Harrington Group helped me with a difficult situation convincing a client who thought in-rack sprinklers for mattress storage wasn’t necessary. Their professional and dedicated approach produced the required sprinkler design documentation in a very short time frame. The reviewing code official was very impressed with the results and Harrington Group’s knowledge of the code and code interpretation. I would not hesitate to go to Harrington Group in the future. — , KBD Group
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.
