Health and Medical

Fire Safety Value

Health and Medical developments are an essential service to the community especially for the ill, immobile and infirm. The occupants of these developments are at a disadvantage in terms of mobility and thus, the fire safety engineering design of these developments is to provide infrastructure design that maximises occupant safety in the event of a fire.

Risk Profile

Health and Medical developments are crucial community hubs, servicing the sick and injured. However, these locations are susceptible to a variety of security concerns, operating at the intersection of vulnerable individuals and groups, around-the-clock use, public thoroughfare, expensive equipment, and often-restricted medication.

Our Fire Experience

Lote has been involved with the Healthcare sector since our founding, specialising in a variety of services required to accommodate the unique requirements of the ill, immobile and infirm. This includes passive fire protection, provision of master fire strategy plans, and assisting with evacuation plans to assist in maximising elderly safety.

Our Security Experience

Lote understands the specialised balance required to manage the unique constraints and features of medical facilities, including large hospitals. We can assist with security design for concerns such as access control and video surveillance, ensuring that medical and health facilities can operate without fear of criminal activity.
