Fire Engineering

Fire safety

Arranging a consultation for fire engineering is a smart idea if you have a unique property, or when normal fire solutions and systems are not suitable for your building. Standard fire safety guides can be restrictive, so instead of focusing on fitting into these guidelines, fire engineering adapts around the building design itself.

Whether the property exists already
or is in the planning stages, you need to consider fire safety. The consultants will inspect your property or plans, and consult with you to identify problem areas, delivering reliable solutions.

The experts are highly trained, and have years of experience in the industry, being from fire brigade and building control backgrounds. They understand current UK legislations and codes, and can adapt their solutions to meet with legislation whilst supplying the most convenient solution for your building.

The fire engineering service includes pre-occupation surveys, advice on timber framed construction, existing building compartment compliance inspection, engineering reports and fire strategies. The methods used range from smoke modelling to pressurisation system analysis, and even radiation analysis.

So whatever services you require, the experienced consultants can help. Fire engineering can solve any fire safety problems you may be having, and give you confidence about the safety of your building.

CFD Modelling

The professionals perform CFD modelling for all types of building on a frequent basis. CFD, or Computational Fluid Dynamics, is a way to model the possible flow of air and smoke within a contained environment. It uses advanced computer technology to create a 3D model of a room, where physical movements of fluids and gases can be represented accurately.

Smoke modelling is very useful for planning fire suppression and prevention systems, and is becoming an increasingly important part of fire engineering. Though it may take a while to complete, it can be extremely useful for emergency services and in justifying building design.

CFD modelling is useful for specific types of buildings and rooms, like internal corridors, shopping centres, and buildings with an atrium. Zone modelling is also available, which is simpler than Computational Fluid Dynamics. However, it has more restricted applications, so is appropriate in only a few scenarios.

CFD modelling can help you to plan appropriate smoke ventilation in a commercial build, but is not always necessary. Other services and methods might produce more useful results in your situation, such as fire safety in timber or radiation analysis. The team will be pleased to consult with you in order to suggest what types of fire engineering would meet your needs.

FAQ's

Does CFD analysis take long?

computational fluid dynamics, or cfd, can take a while to model and analyse, and the professionals will guide you on estimated finishing dates before starting work. if you are pressed for time, zone smoke modelling is faster but delivers less versatile results.

Will the fire engineer be well trained or qualified?

all the fire safety consultants are well trained, and have a career background in building control or fire brigade. they have the expertise to offer practical guidance and fire engineering services.

How can fire engineering help with smoke control?

the professionals offer various services to help you in managing smoke control. for instance, cfd and zone smoke modelling. this can help you to draw up or justify building designs, as well as allowing the consultants to recommend suitable smoke control systems.

What are the advantages fire safety engineering?

there are many benefits to fire protection engineering, the main one being making sure your property complies with uk fire safety legislation, whilst preserving more innovative aspects of the design. it can also help to resolve specific problems.
