Sebench started in the insurance industry. Our first contract was to provide the insurance approval and oversight for all of US Steel’s fire protection projects around the world. Over the past nine years, Sebench has grown to offer consulting as well as complete fire protection design services for our clients’ projects. Our level of expertise ensures that a project is done correctly the first ti...me. If we have to find a unique solution, we will work with the fire marshal, insurance companies, and many of our manufacturers’ representatives to find the best solution and get it approved.
The way Sebench works is we design a sprinkler system, pump house, or alarm system and take it out to bid to several manufactures/installers for the Owner. The Owner then has a contract with the installer directly so there is no mark-up. This gives our client the purchasing power to have competitive pricing on the job, with less change orders, and the comfort of knowing that they will have a system that will work and meet required local codes and standards.
