FIRE ENGINEERING

We work with architects and design teams to develop fire strategies, which often involves complex engineering analysis. Our aim is to reduce approval risk and increase design certainty from the outset. We have a proven track record in realising design freedoms for high profile iconic architecture.

What is a fire strategy?

A bespoke building ‘fire strategy report’ describes the fire safety issues of a building and how they are addressed. It acts as a guide for the design team, by identifying standards or setting performance criteria, e.g. for the capacity of a smoke extract system, and/or the fire resistance of elements of structure.

It is the basis of the submission to the approving authorities (i.e. Building Control Body and Fire Authority). A concept fire strategy report will evolve through the design process and is refined and expanded as the project progresses with a view to becoming an as-built fire strategy for use throughout the building's life cycle.
