Fire Engineering Services
Fire engineering is a specialist field. It requires a qualified and experience person who has the benefit of knowledge gained from attending multiple incidents. At Firecomply, we have the skills and expertise to save our clients a considerable amount of money with our fire engineering services.
Who we work with
Our team of highly qualified and experienced personnel can support people involved in all aspects of building design and management, including architects, surveyors, builders and property owners. For example, if your business has engaged an architect for a new build or extension, we can work with them to deliver a cost-effective fire engineering solution that will integrate with the project.
If the building in question is older or listed, you can also benefit from our experience and knowledge of fire engineering for historical buildings and how current legislation affects them.
Fire engineering fees
Our fire engineering services are generally offered on a day rate basis, and the costs will vary according to the nature of the project. In our experience, our clients generally find that the cost of our fire engineering services are virtually negligible in the bigger scheme of things, as the savings we can deliver often represent a significant margin.
But you don’t need to take our word for it. Here are some examples of recent fire engineering projects we’ve carried out:
Hotel & Leisure
A hotel in a major chain was facing a bill of £700,000 for replacing its fire doors. We completed a fire door condition survey, where we reduced the bill to around £170,000, delivering a potential saving of more than half a million pounds. Since then, we’ve completed surveys on more hotels in the chain and look forward to continuing to work through the whole portfolio over time.
A city council was faced with a choice of replacing two external fire escapes or moving to new premises, potentially costing a six-figure sum. At Firecomply we carried out a survey and submitted a proposal to save a considerable amount of money and disruption by implementing a new evacuation plan plus some internal upgrades.
During the conversion of an old public house to student accommodation, a social housing provider was receiving conflicting information about the legislation they needed to comply with, which potentially would have proved costly. We carried out a fire engineering study on the project, delivering the outcome of a healthy five-figure saving.
