Fire Safety Engineering involves specifying fire protection systems by analysing their performance in protecting human life and assets. These systems may include smoke extractors, smoke detectors, emergency signage, or evacuation procedures that might be 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 Building Codes of Australia, SOLAS or AS 1850. Designers might decide to use alternative solutions to those proposed in the standards and regulations. This is sometimes because the relevant building or vehicle is non-standard, or because they see a benefit to using a different approach. But how would a designer know if their alternative approach provided an acceptable level of safety?
We take a holistic approach to fire safety, using industry-leading tools to best quantify fire safety risks and recommend effective and affordable solutions. This involves a combination of qualitative assessment, statistical analysis and where required, quantitative modelling and simulation. Our approach to fire safety engineering is to integrate all elements of fire safety systems including:
