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.
Our approach is to provide bespoke fire engineering solutions to achieve an acceptable level of life safety whilst maximising architectural design freedom. We provide all fire engineering in house, including Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) modelling.
We offer a full range of fire risk management services in relation to the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and the Fire (Scotland) Act 2005, including:
Astute Fire is keen to provide future financial support for research initiatives, including PhD Studentships, that we feel could make a significant contribution to the further development of this discipline. We also provide opportunities for current university students to become involved in the industry through internships organised in collaboration with The Ogden Trust.
We are proud to be a main sponsor of the Scottish Design Awards 2018.
