FDS Consult takes a creative and innovative approach to fire strategy. The application of extensive fire engineering expertise takes a solution-driven approach with an unparalleled understanding of the fire codes and knowledge of fire and smoke behaviours that not only optimise life safety, but maximise the available floor area, generate cost savings and align with the architectural vision of the building.
Fire approval is mandatory – FDS Consult have the knowledge not only to meet and exceed safety standards to achieve approvals but also the approach of our fire safety consultancy allows us to look at working outside the code to achieve commercial objectives such as cost savings.
Expert fire engineering design from a team of dedicated fire consultants to develop fire strategies using a value engineering approach to maximise space and minimise costs, you can be confident that our advice will be tailored to meet your requirements.
FDS Consult is able to offer you the best fire safety solutions by ensuring we have the best fire consultants on our team – we'll work holistically with your building to find solutions that enhance fire safety whilst remaining true to its aesthetic vision.
Our investment in advanced computer modelling techniques (CFD Modelling) means that we can demonstrate how our proposed fire strategy will work in practice, enabling you to be more confident that a more flexible and less prescriptive approach to fire design will work for you. The use of Computational Fluid Dynamics Modelling (CFD) creates a virtual model of a building and uses complex equations to calculate fire and smoke behaviours that we use to validate our strategies and designs.
Following completion of a building, responsibility for managing its fire risk transfers to its management team and they need to have a comprehensive and coherent fire management strategy in place to maintain high levels of safety. We understand fire strategies for buildings therefore our expert can help building management teams to consider every element of the building's ongoing fire safety, such as how evacuations will be carried out, what processes are in place to monitor visitor arrivals and what procedures have been devised to ensure that fire equipment is serviced and routine checks are documented.
