Fire Engineering is the application of expert judgement, scientific and engineering principles. Firewise base this on an understanding of the effects of fire and of the reaction and behaviour of people to fire by experience in the fire industry and professional qualifications with the aim to protect people, property and the environment from the effects of fire.
Fire Engineering can have a positive impact on the design/construction/occupation elements of a project. Firewise discuss clients specifications to identify flexibility in designs which will support the creativity of the architect’s vision. Fire Engineering in most projects provides a building which is a higher standard of fire safety than standard code compliant designs with both financial and safety benefits. Our Fire Engineering and Design Strategy Reports enable internal design alterations, which can result in removal in compensatory measures resulting in more floor space for the client to rent /sell.
Performance based Fire Engineering
Our fire engineers aim to support the client through the Building Regulation processes with a consideration for costs, time scales and efficiency. The primary focus is on the client’s needs and vision, along with a safe and sustainable building for the future.
