Fire Engineering

We provide invaluable technical support and regulatory guidance throughout each project; forming a bridge between the clients vision, the architectural objectives and the engineering requirements of each building design.

Our expert knowledge of building and fire, as well as a comprehensive understanding of current legislation, allows us to provide economical and operational fire solutions.

Our approach allows clients to benefit from both a fire safety strategy but also the design of the fire protection system which is identified in the strategy to a complete design. This allows for a more cost-effective complete package.

Equipping clients with economical solutions is essential in safeguarding their properties. Our fire engineering team ensures everything is operational and within the design objectives and we provide strategic fire engineering advice to ensure the scheme takes account of current legislation in terms of fire safety, escape, smoke control and fire protection systems.

These are achieved without compromising design standards through value-engineered solutions to suit the client’s objectives and the development brief.
We option a range of alternative fire protection strategies, considering and comparing alternatives in order to make recommendations, that best suit the scheme.
