Fire Safety Engineering systems may include smoke extractors, smoke detectors, emergency signage, or evacuation procedures used within a building, engine room or other enclosed spaces.
Requirements for the design and installation of these systems are most often contained in standards and regulations, such as SOLAS or building codes. Designers might sometimes decide to use alternative solutions to those proposed because the vessel, asset or building is non-standard or because they see a benefit to using a different approach.
We take a holistic approach to fire safety, using industry-leading tools to quantify fire safety risks best and recommend practical and affordable solutions, which involves a combination of qualitative assessment, statistical analysis and, where required, quantitative modelling and simulation.
The benefits of Fire Safety Engineering include:
We conduct in-depth fire investigations using the latest technologies. We are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Our network offers clients extra security for an independent and high-quality fire investigation by internationally certified researchers.
Our certification guarantees the world’s highest standard in fire investigation techniques. All investigations are performed under the scientific method of the National Fire Protection Association. All investigators go through continuous training and re-certification.
Documenting a fire scene requires precise, on-the-spot mapping of the available evidence. Our 3D laser scan camera (Matterport) helps document fire investigation scenes more comprehensively than traditional tools and provides a complete snapshot of the fire scene. Laser scanning supports a highly objective, systematic approach and improves workflow efficiency, from gathering evidence on the spot to post-processing and presentation in court for forensic investigation.
Fire investigation includes both field and laboratory work to determine the cause of the fire. By using the CT scan, we can create images that distinguish between organic and inorganic substances or identify damage-causing defects, making it easier to pinpoint the cause of the fire.
