Sports and Entertainment

Fire Safety Value

Entertainment venues are famous for the large crowds that they are able to accommodate within a single venue. However, the greater the number of occupants in a given space the greater the consideration of evacuation. Balancing exit widths and available seating space is often a concern when designing an entertainment venue and needs to be carefully considered such that the entire venue is able to be safely evacuated within a reasonable timeframe.

Risk Profile

Entertainment venues are an important part of Australia's national profile. Sports, music, live shows, movies and more occur across a variety of locations ranging from intimate theatres to enormous stadiums. Unfortunately, these locations are prime targets for crime, cybercrime and terrorism – and very often have no plans, let alone event-specific plans, to account for these risks.

Our Fire Experience

Lote has experience in Fire Engineered design of sports and entertainment venues as well as using evacuation modelling to determine the optimal exit widths to allow for evacuation of the entire venue. Our approach is based on building design that allows for occupants to exit the building in an emergency so that they can relax and focus on the entertainment.

Our Security Experience

Lote offers tailored Security services for all kinds of Sporting and Entertainment venues, such as stadia and theatres. Servicing large numbers of attendees and hosting important events, it is critical that these facilities have security measures fit for purpose. Our risk-managed approach allows event planners and owners to conduct business with the knowledge that crime, cybercrime and counterterrorism have all been appreciated and planned for.
