Our expertise in fire safety design

Page Description

As buildings become more complex, it is vital to consider the fire safety design implications of any project from the start.

As architects push the design envelope ever further

As architects push the design envelope ever further, many innovative building designs now utilise fire safety engineering rather than having to rely solely on functional-based codes. Historically, fire safety was seen as a constraint to innovative design, but this needn’t be the case. Fire safety design can enable architects to achieve innovative cost-effective designs while meeting fire safety needs.

Successful fire safety design requires an understanding of a wide range of issues and components, and the interactions between them. These include fire source, smoke movement, heat transfer to the building structure, detection, human behaviour and toxicity.

We can help you to incorporate the latest fire safety design principles into you building projects without impacting adversely on the function or appearance of the building.

Our experts can provide advice and expertise to both architects and building control. We can support at all stages of project design and implementation, including:

  • Regulations compliance

  • Fire modelling, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and risk assessments

  • Fire protection measures, both active and passive, and structural fire precautions

  • Materials performance

  • Fire detection and suppression

  • Heat transfer to the structure

  • Smoke movement and toxicity, and smoke and heat exhaust ventilation systems

  • People movement and egress (evacuation) modelling, and means of escape.
