Fire Engineering for a Safer World
Our internationally renowned partner, Exova Warringtonfire, has led fire engineering development and are acknowledged as one of the world leaders of this field.
Their approach often leads to more cost effective designs both in terms of money and space. For example, an engineered fire strategy may remove an entire staircase from an original design that is based merely on the Standards. And smoke modeling may show a space will remain tenable for longer than expected, resulting in greater travel distances.
Exova’s fire engineers are experts in all types of fire modelling, including computational fluid dynamics (CFD) smoke modeling, evacuation analyses, structural fire engineering and radiation analysis. They can therefore identify the best approach for any particular situation.
Knowledge of both the relevant Regulations and established contacts within local fire authorities means they are well placed to help the design team gain the approval of the authorities for the design.
