Fire Engineering – for construction fire safety
Fire safety design is a critical part of any construction project and like many building consultancy services, it is important to factor it in as early as possible in the project lifecycle. Gaining detailed and considered advice from a trusted consultancy early in the design process can ensure late stage design changes are minimised – and reduce the risk of costly or potentially damaging errors.
