Fire Consultancy – including analysis of destructive fire events
Probyn Miers are highly experienced in providing independent analysis on compliance with fire regulations and standards in buildings. We have been instructed in connection with many destructive fire situations where the compliance of the design and construction with fire regulations has been questioned. These cases have involved buildings under construction as well as completed buildings damaged or destroyed by fire.
The services we offer include:
- Review of materials and their behaviour in fire conditions;
- Helping to build an understanding of the reasons why a fire proved to be so destructive;
- Reviewing the mechanisms of fire spread around large buildings and the means by which these fires should have been contained and the damage mitigated;
- Working closely with fire engineers and forensic scientists in the analysis of destructive fire events.
Probyn Miers are able to contribute their wealth of experience and expertise in the design of large and complex building projects involving extensive negotiations with fire services and local authorities.
