We have a track record of using fire engineering to resolve operational problems with fire ventilation, dry fire services, hydrants and sprinkler systems.

One example is the use of an ‘activated sub-duct  to improve the extraction rates of existing or new shafts. This concept allows a designer to get more from an existing smoke exhaust riser.

Another example is to restore a passive smoke ventilation system that had OH&S issues with AS1851 maintenance activities. We had to build a rig to test how to restrain windows after fusible bolts had melted.

A final example is to resolve evacuation times in a healthcare facility through superior smoke ventilation using passive extraction.

Our Fire Detection services also involve:
  • Site fire inspections,
  • Commissioning management to ensure compliance with codes, client requirements, and expectations,
  • Functional testing,
  • Performance based design,
  • Smoke spread computer modelling,
  • Full building design,
  • Due diligence inspections,
  • Master planning, and
  • Lodgment and liaison with local authorities.
