Make Your Architectural Vision Functional

Leave the fire safety compliance to our team, including NER Registered Fire Engineers and C10 Accredited Certifiers, enabling you to focus on your design objectives and project goals.

We Share your Design Vision

Every structure is unique in terms of its design, layout and operation. We adapt our fire engineering approach to consider these factors.

Confidence in Fire Safety

Good risk management mandates going beyond minimum standards to meet life safety, property protection and business continuity objectives.

Peace of Mind

Our team adopts a systems approach to fire safety design, enabling long-term risk management for project stakeholders, rather than just providing a piece of paper to meet regulatory requirements.

Fire Engineering Design Considerations

Development of a co-ordinated and holistic fire safety strategy that compliments the unique architectural vision, building functionality and sustainable design initiatives.

A performance-based fire compartmentation strategy to allow open inter-connections, atria, open stairs and connectivity between various uses.

Maximising net usable and lettable floor space by allowing flexibility in room layouts.

Rationalised fire rating requirements in relation to concrete, glass, steel and timber elements.

Allow use of novel, innovative and sustainable materials like timber, CLT, NLT, carbon fibre and PTFE.

Optimise the emergency egress requirements to allow full building evacuation, mixed building uses and varying occupant characteristics.

Consideration of emergency egress for fire and non-fire emergency (e.g. gas leaks, security alerts, false alarms).

Alignment of fire safety strategy with other considerations such as dangerous goods storage, laboratory use security, business continuity and asset protection.

Work closely with the Disabled Access Consultant and design team to develop an inclusive evacuation strategy, with special regard to egress from multiple level open void floors.

Incorporation of the Environmentally Sustainable Design (ESD) initiatives including natural ventilation, sustainable building materials, natural lighting and dual skin façade.

Performance-based smoke hazard management to address the open voids, open floor plan, zoned smoke control, mixed use, and full evacuation mode.

Interfacing between different building uses - office, community, retail and entertainment.

Interfacing with adjoining building structures.

Compliance with relevant BCA Performance Requirements that relate to fire safety.

Adoption of BCA DtS (Deemed-to-Satisfy) Provisions where these provide an effective design solution.
