About Our Team:
The Building & Fire Safety Department provides for protection of workers, the public, the environment, and property from fire and its related hazards. We apply integrated technical judgment, requiring the use of the scientific method to recognize problems, collect data through observation and research, and to engineer, innovate, and deliver fire protection solutions, enabling Sandia National Laboratories to accomplish its missions, while protecting workers, the public, the environment, and key national assets. We apply knowledge in the fundamentals of science and engineering, while demonstrating a deep understanding of engineering and scientific principles in a risk-informed, performance-based arena. Our team creates unique solutions by applying scientific and engineering methods to prevent and mitigate fire and life safety hazards in a highly regulated environment, including nuclear, accelerator, explosive, flammable liquids and solids, semi-conductor research, and test and manufacturing facilities. We see computational fire dynamic modeling simulation and analysis to evaluate and develop performance-based solutions in areas not addressed by the prescriptive industry consensus codes.
Sandia National Laboratories is the nation’s premier science and engineering lab for national security and technology innovation, with teams of specialists focused on cutting-edge work in a broad array of areas. Some of the main reasons we love our jobs:
