Fire engineering

Cundall's team of fire engineers work with our clients to ensure that their buildings not only comply with the relevant legislation, but also provide a safe environment in the most cost-effective manner, without compromising the architectural integrity of the designs.

Fire protection is one of the most important investments a company can make in defending its business and its people from the destruction that fire causes. The development of an integrated fire safety strategy will identify areas of risk and assist in eliminating the root causes of danger.

Our fire engineering team believes that our clients deserve the best, and so we ensure that each building complies with safety guidance in the most cost-effective way, using the most advanced fire engineering techniques.

Our expertise in the design and development of active fire protection systems is well known throughout the industry, and is used to ensure that the fire protection systems are integrated with the building services, thus minimising the impact of these services on the design. Our fire engineers will lead the negotiation process to secure the necessary approvals and to provide a building that meets all of the relevant statutory requirements without compromising the aesthetics or the functionality of the building.
