Fire Engineering
(c) 2013 Fire Guidance UK LLP
No nonsense fire safety consulting
The art of understanding the phenomenon known as fire coupled with a sound knowledge of the key effects of fire.  Knowledge of the likely reaction and behaviour of building occupants to fire compliments the fire theory and allows the Fire Engineer to develop a solution that satisfies the wishes of the building designer whilst at the same time providing protection for people, property, business continuity and the environment.
The application of various Codes and Standards, added to knowledge gained from experience, ensures that any Fire Engineered solution meets the required fire safety goals without being unduly restrictive on the use and functionality of the building.
Working closely with the Client and their design team it is the responsibility of the Fire Engineer to ensure the smooth passage of the project through the required Approvals process and act as liaison between the team and the relevant Authorities (Building Control and Local Fire and Rescue Services etc.).
