At BLUETT & O’DONOGHUE ARCHITECTS, we offer Fire Engineering design services and we can ensure that applications for Planning Permission and Fire Safety Certificates run hand in hand and that there is full consistency between them. The requirement for Fire Safety Certificates for most new building types makes it crucial that there is a rigorous and systematic approach to fire safety from the outset of design. This also makes for cost effective solutions, efficient Project Management and reduces the need for changes to the design or Variations to the Contract during the course of construction.
As lead consultant and Project Manager, a suitably qualified Architect is well placed to advise the client on fire safety issues throughout the duration of the project and is in a position to incorporate a fire engineering strategy which is sympathetic to the overall concept from the earliest stages of planning and design. This holds true both for new buildings and for the upgrading of fire safety in existing buildings. BLUETT & O’DONOGHUE ARCHITECTS have a particular interest and expertise in the integration of fire engineering into historic buildings and we have a strong track record of marrying best practice in Conservation Architecture with fire safety requirements to achieve an outcome which is sensitive to the character of the historic structure.
