It was hard work, but it was well worth it. It’s incredible what a team of people can accomplish when working together.

Fire Protection Engineering firm, Harrington Group, Inc., is proud of two employees, Susan Kneeland and Diane Stone, for teaming up with Georgia Pacific to begin the building process of a home with Habitat for Humanity. The Habitat for Humanity organization has helped to build or repair over 600,000 houses and has served more than three million people around the world.

Ms. Kneeland and Ms. Stone spent last Saturday nailing down floorboards and raising walls to help an Atlanta woman fulfill a dream of owning a home where she can raise her two small children. “In just one day to watch a foundation form into the framework of a home was an amazing experience,” Ms. Stone said, “It was hard work, but it was well worth it. It’s incredible what a team of people can accomplish when working together. I was so humbled at the end of the day when the young lady came and gave us hugs and told us how much she appreciates everything that we did for her and her family that day.”

As a small fire protection engineering firm located in metro-Atlanta, Harrington Group firmly believes in the importance of the business, as well as its employees, giving back and participating in the local communities. One of the firm’s core values is to “satisfy the needs of others to a high degree through providing exceptional service”. Providing service not only applies to providing customer service to the firm’s clients, but to also providing exceptional service to the community by way of helping those in need.

Harrington, P.E., FSFPE, Harrington Group has become one of the most experienced and respected practices dedicated to fire protection engineering headquartered in the southeast. The firm is committed to providing its clients with creative solutions, while optimizing the relationship between cost and benefits.
