Chetan Bhagwat

Fire Protection Designer

While growing up, Chetan’s favorite subjects were math and science and he had a strong interest in understanding the mechanisms and logic behind different machines and processes. This interest directed him toward engineering. Knowing his work in the design of fire protection systems creates a difference in people’s lives and helps to keep them safe, motivates him in his work as a fire protection designer. Chetan is also fluent in 3 languages, Hindi, English and Marathi, and can also speak and understand most Punjabi as well.

What is the coolest project you have worked on at Summer Consultants (so far)?

I have worked on numerous projects, however, my favorite so far is the Lewis Powell, Jr. Courthouse Annex chiller replacement. It was the first project where I did fire protection, life safety and fire alarm design on a historic building. Historic buildings have their own challenges which I was unaware of, so I learned a lot about it while working on it.
