Fire engineering is an essential element of building design. Much more than the application of prescriptive guidance, fire engineering provides invaluable protection to safeguard the built asset. Fire engineering is a scientific discipline that focuses on the protection of people, property, and the environment from the effects of fires. It is an interdisciplinary field that involves the application of scientific, engineering, and management principles to prevent, control, and mitigate the damaging effects of fires. Fire engineering includes the analysis of fire hazards and the development of strategies to reduce the likelihood of fire occurrence, and to protect people and property from the effects of fires should they occur. Fire engineering also involves the development of strategies to limit the damage caused by fires, such as improved fire detection systems, fire suppression systems, and fire safety equipment.
We understand the importance of achieving the architectural and functional vision for the project while ensuring compliance with Building Regulations. We believe the Fire Strategy should be designed to fit the building, and not the other way around.
Supporting you from review of early concept design through to detailed fire strategy documentation, we draw on deep expertise gained in projects of all scales, across all development types.
- Strategic design review exercises
- Detailed fire strategy reports and drawings
- Preparation of fire safety management documentation
- Fire risk assessment
- Property protection and business continuity reporting
- Quantitative fire risk assessment
