Fire Engineering

Fire engineering offers an alternative approach to satisfying statutory, insurance and operational safety requirements based on reason and risk rather than prescription. Modern building is driving design to more flexible bespoke approaches that are not possible within prescriptive codes. Fire engineering offers the benefits of assessing the design from first principles assess the building performance under fire and quantify the risks, leading to project specific solutions that achieve high standards of safety whilst also achieving client aspirations and reducing cost.

The application of fire engineering is not limited to complex buildings; it can be applied to all building types. Examples of the potential benefits are:

  • Increase lettable floor space by reducing exit widths or removing staircases
  • Increasing flexibility by extending travel distances within buildings
  • Improving construction programme by optimising structural fire protection requirements
  • Increasing glazing within building facades or reducing fire performance for glazed elements
  • Increasing compartment sizes and providing alternative methods of providing compartmentation
  • Optimising fire safety system designs to reduce onus on building design
