FDS Consult, one of the UK’s leading experts in fire engineering, is proud to celebrate its 15th anniversary this month.
The firm, which was founded in September 2001 by Gerard Sheridan and Andy Riley, has gone from strength to strength, providing a professional and expert approach to fire engineering consultancy.
Thanks to its innovative approach to fire engineering, which sees it consider the most appropriate solutions for each project based on the client’s requirements, FDS Consult has successfully enabled the realisation of ambitious architectural designs, while also providing substantial cost and space savings.
Over the past decade and a half, these qualities have seen the company appointed to high-profile projects, from The Corniche mixed-use development on the Thames’ Albert Embankment to the flagship store of fashion brand Alexander McQueen in London.
Work of this calibre has seen FDS Consult grow year upon year, expanding in its team to assist in the production of its strategies, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Modelling analysis and its client offering. This has also resulted in the company opening its new London office, bringing it closer to its clients.
Drawing on its history and experience, FDS Consult has hosted a number of CPD seminars and webinars, with its highly-rated technical presenters sharing their many years of knowledge in order to better educate those within the construction sector on the advantages of fire engineering.
Speaking on the landmark occasion, Gerard Sheridan, founder and Managing Director of FDS Consult said:
“Ever since I started this company with Andy Riley it’s been our aim to provide our clients with the best service possible, and to help them bring their designs to life while also ensuring that each project has the most appropriate level of fire safety. Our 15 years in business, and ongoing growth, are a testament to our success in achieving these goals, and I would like to thank the FDS Consult team in making this a reality.”
