Alex has over eight year's experience as a fire and life safety engineer, providing code consulting, fire suppression, detection and alarm systems design, and hazards analysis for various project types worldwide, Alex is proficient in using computerized design tools including Revit and AutoCAD to produce design documentation. He also has expertise in using additional fire protection specific modeling tools such as Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS), CONTAM, Pyrosim, and Pathfinder to assist in the performance-based design approach of atrium smoke evacuation systems, shaft and compartment pressurization smoke control systems, and alternative egress design solutions for large assembly spaces.
As a member of the Society of Fire Protection Engineers (SFPE) and a registered fire protection engineer, Alex’s holistic approach to fire protection and life safety systems brings innovative and goal-oriented compliance strategies to the project teams he is a part of. His experience working with regional, national, and international based mechanical, electrical, and plumbing consultants, as well as various contractors, brings efficiencies and true value to each of our clients and consultants.
Alex obtained a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mechanical Engineering from Saint Louis University and completed a Master of Engineering Degree in Fire Protection Engineering through the University of Maryland’s Fire Protection Engineering Distance Learning Program.
Alex is a Kansas City native who relocated to Denver four years ago. When he is not traveling, he likes to spend his free time hanging out with his wife, Allison, and dog, Gus. He also enjoys skiing, taking on unnecessary home improvement projects, and playing guitar as often as he can. Alex is an avid supporter of the greatest football team in the world, which in his mind, is the Kansas City Chiefs.
Alex is participating in a PAKS study for the Society of Fire Protection Engineers (SFPE) and the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES). Professional Activities and Knowledge Study, or PAKS, process, ensures that the specifications for the fire protection engineering professional engineering exam remain relevant to current practice. This process involves identification of the knowledge areas, skills and abilities that a licensed engineer with four to six years of professional experience needs in order to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the public; results are then used to develop the examination specifications.
