CREATING FIRE DESIGNS TO HELP MAKE YOUR PROJECT A SUCCESS
Whether it’s a new build, building alteration, change of use, or seismic upgrade, we can provide advice from the planning stage right through to preparing a fire design report for building consent. With years of experience dealing with local authorities we can help make the process as efficient and stress-free as possible.
Fire Designs Reports
With a detailed knowledge of the NZ Building Code C Clauses and the Acceptable Solutions, we produce easy to understand and practical fire design reports.
We think it’s important to discuss your design requirements at an early stage to avoid any surprises and unnecessary costs.
And we believe communication is the key to a successful project - you’ll find us readily available, easy to talk to, and keen to understand your project goals.
Our goal is to develop a fire design solution that which works for you now and into the future.
Existing Building Reports
Understanding the true cost of future building alterations is critical for managing your property. Improvements to the means of escape from fire are often required to achieve building compliance when undertaking an alteration.
We believe it’s better to know early what improvements are required.
As part of our report process, we’ll visit site to develop a comprehensive understanding of your buildings. We’ll identify where the gaps exist with the current code, and present practical solutions for gaining compliance.
Our existing building reports will also provide you with confidence and peace of mind when it comes to designing and budgeting for future projects.
We can help you meet your obligations as a building owner under the Fire and Emergency (Fire Safety, Evacuation Procedures, and Evacuation Schemes) Regulations 2018.
We’ll create an evacuation scheme designed to meet the specific requirements of your building and your occupiers, starting with a site visit, and a review any existing fire design information and plans. Once we’ve developed the scheme, we’ll manage the FENZ application process for you.
And once its approved we can provide you with everything you need to maintain the scheme - from signage to hi-vis jackets, onsite training of fire wardens, right through to carrying out your trial evacuations.
In conjunction with our fire design reports we can carry out construction monitoring to CM2 level and give building owners the confidence that a project has been completed to the consented fire design and in accordance with the building code.
We can provide oversight of the construction process in relation to fire safety systems with onsite visits at key stages of the build. Once the build has been completed according to the fire design, we’ll issue our producer statement (PS4).
