Flexibility • Simplicity • Accuracy • Integrity • Fun
In these five words we define what Warp Drive Enterprises, Inc is
all about. They are the cornerstones of our business model and the
building blocks of each and every design project we undertake.
WDEI won’t try to make your project fit "our" style… WDEI will make
our style fit "YOUR" project. From the title block on your fire
sprinkler layout to the finished look of your website, WDEI will
adjust to accommodate your particular needs, wants and requirements.
As our Design Team becomes more familiar with your situation, you’ll
come to feel that WDEI is on the same page with you… We’ve even been
accused of "reading minds"! Your drawings, reports, commentaries and
your website will reflect YOUR business and build YOUR brand the way
YOU want. WDEI will be there to facilitate your plan and help make it
work for you.
Here at WDEI we (almost religiously) adhere to the old K.I.S.S. principle…Keep It

pipe straight and make things as easy on the installer as possible… in
other words K.I.S.S!
Amazingly the same thing works for Web Design too! Provide a
simple, straightforward, easy to navigate, highly informative content
driven web site and it works!
So here at WDEI, we will continue to K.I.S.S. and design better
Fire Protection Systems and Websites for the Fire Sprinkler Industry.
Our goal is always perfection, our design methods allow us to spend
"extra time" double and triple checking to ensure "no mistakes". This
includes spelling, grammar, appearance, mathematical, code and

Say what we mean, mean what we say. Accept responsibility for our
mistakes and correct them. Communicate with our clients, "Tell it like
it is!". Doing what is right, even when it is difficult to do the right
thing. We practice Professionalism to the nth degree.
It cannot be stressed how important our integrity is to us. We will
(and have) gone to great lengths to establish and protect our reputation. Whether
pulling an all nighter, working weekends and/or holidays, addressing
"issues" with "authorities" or "correcting" a "misunderstanding"
will do whatever it takes to get the job done right.

All of our designers enjoy this work, even battling with an AHJ
over some obscure code reference! It’s not unusual to hear laughter
during a phone conversation. And we hope our enthusiasm is infectious!
