Fire & Safety

Fire engineering combines a scientific knowledge of how fires start, spread, are contained and extinguished, with behavioural insights into how people react to them. The result is an engineering discipline that protects people, property and the environment from fire.

The approach to fire engineering in our projects helps clients manage risks cost effectively and efficiently. This entails developing a situation-specific strategy, using statistics from real fires, analysis tools and studies of human behaviour. Our experience shows this can realise architectural visions and add value by reducing over-specification from conservative codes of practice.

Together with our partners we can support projects across all sectors including high-rise, residential, offices, retail, education, sports facilities, industrial, aviation, and healthcare, and can cover all stages of the development process from identifying risks and opportunities for improved value through to construction supervision and advice.
