FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Based on an organization’s programs, capabilities, and budget, LSE will tailor a solution to meet your needs.

- Below ceiling only
- Life Safety Drawing development, validation, and/or drawing updates.
There is no prescribed approach to a project. Detailed proposals are developed with input from our customers.
Drawing turn-around is dependent on many factors the least of which is how many projects/additions have occurred since the last drawing project. Total ft2 of addition or change and the availability of DWG files for the affected areas. Most drawing projects are completed within 30 days IF the changes are minor. Larger more complex updates require more time to source the base files and review the construction/renovation areas. Allow plenty of lead time for projects with > 25K of new backgrounds.
Our goal is to help you provide a safe environment for patients, staff and the community and reduce the number of times a surveyor stops to ask questions.
By TJC all Ambulatory Occupancies require Life Safety Drawings. A stand-a-lone Business Occupancy would not require Life Safety Drawings.
LSE develops life safety drawings for any building based on the desire of the customer. We have developed Ambulatory Occupancy Life Safety Drawings and Life Safety Drawings for complex Business Occupancies. Our personal feeling is that all buildings should have current Life Safety drawings available, but we know that is not always possible.
Drawings for Business Occupancies do not have to be as complex as those for Healthcare and Ambulatory so they can be developed for a fraction of the cost. LSE is always happy to discuss your options.
