Commercial and Retail

Fire Safety Value

Commercial and retail developments commonly accommodate greater occupant numbers with a potential for greater fuel loads. Fire safety engineering in these developments takes this into account to provide design input for occupant life safety and asset protection.

Risk Profile

Commercial and Retail developments are vulnerable to a variety of crimes such as theft, breaking and entering, and malicious damage. Lote's security approach aims to reduce this risk, increase hardiness against damage and entry, and enable recovery and evidentiary mechanisms such as video surveillance.

Our Fire Experience

The Lote Team have developed comprehensive fire safety strategies for buildings ranging from single-storey through to forty-three-storey high rise buildings, and everything in-between. We ensure the design team can realise their vision for the project while still achieving a level of compliance with the overarching building code.

Our Security Experience

From boutique retail outlets to corporate headquarters, Lote considers the individual risk profile of your development to establish an effective security design specific to your needs. Our designs strive to balance functionality, cost and aesthetic profile to deliver an effective security suite that integrates well with your site.
