Several areas involving fire safety engineering naturally overlap with security, such as access control, response planning and master planning. SGWs consultants can work easily and efficiently together across both sectors resulting in a holistic approach to managing the routine everyday fire and security demands through to the serious ‘what if’s’ and the after effects of any serious incident.
Fire safety engineering is the application of science and engineering principles to protect people and their environments from the destructive effects of fire and smoke. SGW’s fire safety engineering professionals have the experience and specialist knowledge to advise, assess and design across the built environment.
The protection of people, assets and the continuity of business operations are combined in our holistic fire strategies. Fire safety management and passive and active fire protection systems are balanced by SGW to be completely optimised for each facility. Our strategic approach provides consistent risk management, regulatory compliance and practical long term management regimes.
SGW’s fire protection engineers identify risks and design safeguards that aid in preventing, controlling, and mitigating the effects of fires. We assist architects, building owners and developers in evaluating buildings’ life safety and property protection goals.
Our fire engineers can be engaged to provide fire investigation and 3rd party review for performance based fire engineering solutions submitted in support of local building regulation applications.
