The History of LSCG

"History is merely a list of surprises. It can only prepare us to be surprised yet again."


How Our Journey Began...

In 2020, House Bill 2701 was passed into law in Washington State. It covers the enforcement, inspections, maintenance and installation of fire, smoke and combination dampers and smoke control systems. HB 2701 requires an ANSI accredited certification for inspections of smoke control systems. We are bringing you the first publicly available certification.


Our Philosophy

We believe that there should be a recognized ANSI certification pathway as outlined in House Bill 2701 that is available to all, regardless of which sector of the industry a person is employed within. A group of us concerned private sector engineers, inspectors, designers and contractors have joined forces to help create an unrestricted certification that allows professionals to comply with the regulations in Washington State and beyond.
