Fire Engineering and Structural Fire Engineering

At Cook Costello, we offer services for fire safety assessments and performance-based solutions for commercial, residential, government and industrial buildings.

Fire Safety Assessment

Fire safety Assessments are carried out for existing buildings to measure compliance with New Zealand Building Code Acceptable Solutions. Performance-based fire safety strategies offer much greater flexibility in building design, whilst ensuring that the level of safety to occupants is not compromised. Our approach takes into consideration the interaction between buildings, occupants, installed fire safety systems as well as fire service facilities to ensure a holistic design approach is adopted.

Fire Engineering and Structural Fire Engineering services include, but are not limited, to:

  • Fire safety engineering design for new buildings, alterations to existing buildings and change of use for existing buildings.
  • Preparation of fire safety reports, specifications, and fire drawings.
  • Provide performance based structural fire designs based on acceptable and alternative solutions.
  • Provide advice on fire safety.
  • Specific fire engineering design.
  • Peer reviews of fire engineering assessments.
  • Optimisation of structural member sizes and associated cost savings.
  • Peer review of fire designs for designers, engineers, and consent authorities.
