Fire Safety Value

Aspects that the Fire Engineer will consider include the proposed upgrades to the train station and impacts to fire and life safety. This includes demonstrating that the proposed modifications to the train stations maintain the existing level of fire safety. Fire egress strategies can also be developed for the station for occupants with a disability who are considered as introduced occupants based on the provision of new lifts, escalators or ramps onto the station.

Risk Profile

The systems of transportation we use are essential aspects of our lives, whether it's for work or recreation. However, these networks are attractive targets for a variety of threats, ranging from petty vandalism to unauthorised abuse of technical mechanisms, and even terror-based risks.

Our Fire Experience

Lote has provided Fire Engineering solutions to a variety of infrastucture clients, including rail stations such as Adamstown, Niagara Park and Ourimbah, as well as broader network-wide solutions. Tansport is a sector which necessitates the inclusion of a variety of specialised aspects of Fire Safety, such as upgrading, maintenance, safety levels and disabled egress.

Our Security Experience

Lote's sectors spans all kinds of transportation projects, including State-Significant rail development, airports, motorways, tunnels and bridges. Lote can work with your design team to develop robust security solutions that incorporate risk-managed approaches into the DNA of the project, protecting life and property over the course of the development's operation and use.
