Spaces are designed to serve and enable a purpose, with occupant safety being a guaranteed minimum. Building codes are the first step to ensuring this safety by prescribing various measures for a range of occupancies and building types.
However, the nature of prescriptive requirements is that they can restrict the creative design process. Insights gleaned from how humans behave within a space, paired with the science of how real fires develop, create opportunities to achieve innovative solutions to fire safety.

Fire Engineering broadens the range of design solutions available using first-principles knowledge and data-driven insights. The application of complex models during the design stage enables the visualization of the fire event itself and how the building and its occupants will respond.

Both clients and the broader design team are enabled with a better understanding of the options available to them in the pursuit of fire safety while achieving economy and efficiency. 

Ultimately, it is keeping people safe that is the driving force behind Fire Engineering. The result is design that stretches beyond prescriptive codes without compromising on efficient utility or emotional impact on our communities.
