Fire Strategy Design

A good fire strategy sets a clear structure for fire safety and is usually  based around demonstrating compliance with the aims of the fire safety  legislation, business protection objectives and insurers’ requirements.

Our team will seek to:

  • Identify the fire safety design challenges and outline proposed  solutions
  • To present any opportunities for the rationalisation of the fire safety  design; and
  • Raise queries that require response to assist the fire strategy  development

For new and altered buildings the fire safety strategy is usually developed  during the design phase of the project. Our fire engineering team work with  you to truly understand the objectives of your project and the completed  building to create the best solution for you

Fire & Evacuation Modelling

By using the most advanced computer modelling methods, our fire  engineering team can present a clear and demonstrated case for a more  secure approach to fire engineering design.

We use this data to create an efficient fire strategy for your building, which  assists in:

  • the creation of an informed fire strategy
  • allows areas of development or improvement to be identified and  implemented.
  • CFD modelling can also be used to prove the effectiveness of a strategy  and compliance with building regulations.
  • superior level of accuracy and detail provides allows smoke ventilation  and fire suppression systems to be optimised.

Through our research in worldwide fire incidents and experimental  evacuation studies, we have developed a unique knowledge and  understanding of the factors influencing occupant escape behaviour  important for the development of effective evacuation strategies.

Fire Risk Assessment

Our fire engineer will survey the site and conduct a fire risk assessment in  accordance with the RR(FS)O2005.

  • Carry out scheduled inspections of the construction site and compile  a report in a format to be agreed with the Client.
  • Carry out scheduled inspections of the construction site and compile  a report in a format to be agreed with the Client.
  • Produce a list of any significant findings, identifying remedial action  as necessary. Any installation errors, omissions, non-conformities are  to be reported to Lendlease site management on the day of the visit,  followed by a written report.

Provide written reports of site findings and observations with written  justifications and make these reports readily available to demonstrate  compliance and allow building acceptance/sign off by an approval body.

Retrospective Fire Strategy

Many existing buildings do not have available information on fire  safety.

By assessing the building plans and through onsite inspections, Our  Fire Engineering team can provide a retrospective fire strategy,  compiling all the relevant fire safety information in one document.

This allows for better planning of future alterations to the building, as  well as understanding how best to operate the building.

Benefits of better understanding the fire strategy for an existing  building include:

  • knowledge of maximum occupant numbers
  • improvements to the strategy for evacuation of disabled  occupants
  • better property protection strategies and possibilities for including  multiple tenants
