April 26, 2011 – Twenty-five years ago, Jeff Harrington saw the need to develop a higher quality, more informed resource for providing fire protection engineering consulting services.  He began Harrington Group, Inc. as a one-man shop in the basement of his then Lilburn, Georgia home.  Over the past 25 years, it has grown to become one of the largest and most experienced firms headquartered in the southeastern United Sates specializing in fire protection engineering, forensic fire engineering, and property loss control consulting.  It has also emerged from that one-man basement shop to offices located in two cities:  Duluth, GA and Charlotte, NC.

Harrington Group strives to create intimate client relationships through delivering the “Best Total Solution” to fire protection engineering problems every time.  The firm’s mission is to provide clients with creative solutions while optimizing the relationship between cost and benefit.  Their specialized expertise includes fire protection design, fire building codes, life safety codes, hazard risk assessments, and fire investigation and has taken the firm throughout the hemisphere with active projects in 20 states, as well as in Canada, Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, and Mexico.

Harrington Group is proud to celebrate 25 years of providing unsurpassed excellence in the fire protection engineering industry. “We are excited about reaching this very important milestone and look forward to providing both private and public sectors with solutions to their fire protection needs”, said Mr. Harrington.
