David B. Lussier, SET

Associate, Chief Fire Protection Designer

Mr. Lussier joined our firm in 1992 after eleven years as a contractor designing fire protection and fire detection systems consisting of sprinkler, standpipe, inert gas suppression systems, ESFR sprinkler systems, CO2, preaction, deluge and air sampling type smoke detection systems. He is well versed in the design of fire protection systems and highly adept at producing innovative and cost-effective solutions for architecturally-challenging spaces.

Mr. Lussier is responsible for the direction of all fire protection system designs at ASW. Many of our projects require innovative design of fire protection systems for unusual spaces, or spaces with special protection requirements. Mr. Lussier works closely with the architect and other disciplines in the coordination of the fire protection systems.

Recent projects include the Master Plan for Fire Protection at the American Museum of Natural History in NY, NY, the Yale University Art Gallery in New Haven, CT, Clark Art Institute and Stetson Library Buildings in Williamstown, MA, the National WWII Museum in New Orleans, LA, and the Spence School in NY, NY.
