​Fire engineering


Fire Safety Engineering employs skills from different disciplines, applying chemistry, physics, mathematics, materials and computational engineering to help prevent deaths, injuries and financial losses caused by fire.

As buildings become more complex, bigger and taller, fire engineers work in collaboration with architects and management teams on construction projects to identify the building's fire risks and develop solutions to reduce, remove or offset those risks.

Fire engineers are responsible for developing fire safety strategies for buildings under fire conditions. This includes fire safety management strategies, design advice on fire safety systems and fire risk assessments.

Understanding the behaviour of fire

To support fire engineered strategies, fire engineers often use computational modelling techniques to understand the likely behaviour of, and predict the spread of, heat and smoke from fire. These techniques can also be used for evacuation modelling to address issues such as single means of escape, extended travel distances and exit width requirements. The findings from these modelling simulations can then be used to refine and develop the design and demonstrate acceptable fire safety.

Fire engineering solutions

Our team of experienced fire engineers can work with you to develop fire safety solutions that do not compromise building's design or functionality and are compliant with fire safety guidance and building regulations.


At Marsden Fire Safety we offer a range of fire protection, fire safety and fire engineering consultancy services.
