Hooper Corporation’s Fire Protection Department was established in 1994 and has grown to be an industry leader in central and southern Wisconsin. We handle all aspects of fire protection projects, from estimating, designing, and fabricating to installation, service, and maintenance.
We are successful in the residential, commercial, industrial and institutional industries, completing projects consisting of new buildings, additions, and retro-fit of existing buildings. Installing and maintaining systems in food grade facilities, pharmaceutical grade facilities, power plants, office buildings, warehouses, freezer storage facilities, restaurants, shopping malls, and apartment buildings, are just a few of our specialties.
We were one of the first construction companies in the area to utilize BIM (Building Information Modeling) in the layout and installation of fire protection systems. BIM is a compilation of computer-aided design, 3D system layout, and clash (or interference) detection with other components of the building construction. When deployed ahead of the project start, BIM can expose any conflicts between the building systems long before the installation process begins, which greatly reduces lost time and waste during the installation phase of the project. BIM is also helpful in the overall project scheduling process, allowing Hooper to confidently produce prefabrication drawings so that assemblies can be built “out of sequence,” delivered to the jobsite and installed with less on-site labor.
Hooper’s fire protection prefabrication facilities are some of the largest in the area. They provide us with flexibility through the use of high production threading, grooving, and welding to reduce your costs and increase our ability to handle ever-tightening project schedules.
Fire Protection Service and Maintenance
After your fire protection system is installed, it requires regular inspections and maintenance per NFPA-25. We offer a full line of inspection, maintenance, and service for your system. Our service and maintenance group is certified to inspect and maintain all of your systems, including:
