Don Falconer founded Falconer Engineering and Testing in 2008 to provide Fire Protection Engineering Services and best apply his 40+ years of experience in fire protection and building construction.


Don's career began in 1978 at Underwriters' Laboratories of Canada (ULC) where he gained expertise in testing and certifying construction materials--most notably full-scale fire testing of building constructions. At ULC he also had opportunity to participate in the fire safety standards and building codes development process. 


Don spent the next 18-1/2 years as Technical Manager with A/D Fire Protection Systems (now part of the Carboline Company), a leading manufacturer of sprayed fire-resistive materials, intumescent fire-resistive coatings for structural steel and fire stop systems. Don managed R&D, testing and certification, and the company's technical/marketing support activities. 

Don continues to participate actively with standards writing and industry organizations in order to always be up-to-date to best serve his clients, and to give back out of genuine concern for life safety.
