Fire in buildings is a serious danger with a significant impact on the safety of the building occupants. Common approaches to fire safety tend to be conservative and add unnecessary costs to the project. Performance-based designs offer a real opportunity for significant reductions in expensive passive fire protection.
At Hera Engineering, Structural Fire Engineering is taken seriously, and we offer performance-based designs on a case-by-case basis. We have extensive experience in multi-storey concrete and steel-framed structures, and are continuously on the forefront of international research and modelling techniques.
With our deep and intuitive understanding of structural fire behaviours, we work with builders, certifiers, clients and architects to formulate the best solution for individual projects. We offer our fire design as an integrated component of our structural designs, as well as a separate specialist service.
With our unique expertise, we offer innovative fire engineering solutions that result in large cost and time savings for our client, while maintaining the safety and integrity of the building.
