As an independent engineering, science and technical consulting firm, our fire investigations department is specialised in the investigation of fires, explosions and other major incidents for all sorts of vehicles and vessels as well as commercial, domestic and industrial buildings.
A key component during the process of investigation is to keep our customers involved to obtain the highest possible results through close cooperation. After completion of this process a comprehensive report concerning the origin and cause will be issued and if required assistance with any subsequent litigation.

Our team conducts in-depth fire investigations using the latest technologies. We are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Our network guarantees independent and high-quality fire investigations by working exclusively with experienced, internationally certified professionals in many research disciplines using state of the art research methods such as 3D visualisation and CT scan.
We offer reliable advice to the commercial, insurance and legal sectors. Furthermore, in-house expertise is readily available to support our fire investigators to simplify the chaos left behind by fires and present clear conclusions to our customers through investigation, reconstruction, fire analysis, fire safety and prevention, simulation, disputes, litigation and technical advice. Our fire investigators are trained to provide oral and written evidence in court and arbitration proceedings in each stage of the claim, dispute and litigation process, anywhere in the world.
We have worked on various marine casualties, including some of the largest and most complex incidents. Our marine fire investigators are supported by our knowledge in marine and electrical engineering, tanker operations and hazardous cargoes to offer a complete investigation service in case of a fire or explosion on board a wide variety of ocean-going and inland vessels.
Our fire investigators are certified by the IAAI (the International Association of Arson Investigators), guaranteeing a high standard in fire investigation techniques and in addition requiring a continuous process of training and re-certification for the investigators. For our investigations the internationally recognised guidelines and recommendations of the NFPA 921 are used as a guide for carrying out safe and systematic investigations or analysis of fire and explosion incidents.
We make the invisible visible, for which a number of innovative tools are deployed. 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.
