Fire engineering

Fire engineering is a vital aspect of all building design processes. Using expert knowledge of the response of people and buildings to fire, our fire engineering team facilitate architectural vision and address client needs, such as business continuity and property protection.

BuroHappold develops integrated fire strategies for a wide variety of construction sectors, using research, analysis and design flair, combined with comprehensive code knowledge, to produce tailor-made fire safety solutions suited to each project’s unique needs.

Fire engineering at BuroHappold has developed significantly and we now have fire engineers located across the UK, with additional capabilities in New York and the Middle East. A combination of international experience and local knowledge enables our engineers to respond quickly to project demands and to fully understand the complexities of working in local markets with the latest industry innovations.
