About Us

Our Story

Astute Fire was formed by a small group of individuals who had a desire to develop a company which focussed on fire engineering and, in particular, its creativity and potential for change. As a purely fire engineering company we have a desire to break down complex problems and develop appropriate solutions based on an understanding of the relationships between risk, design and cost. The company was formed on this basis.

The first office was opened in Scotland in 2010, with the London office opening in 2014.

“A perfect fire strategy achieves an optimum balance between the risks of fire occurring and the costs of protecting against them. However, this requires a rigorous assessment of the chosen fire safety systems, and at the current time there is no legislative requirement to do this in any building.”

– Dr Craig English

Our Team

We have grown organically and now have around 30 staff working out of London and Glasgow, dealing with a large variety of fire safety related problems. Every member of the team brings a unique set of skills and experiences. Core to our success is our flat management structure and culture that welcomes contributions from everyone. In our experience, some of the best solutions arise from what can sometimes seem the craziest of ideas. We recognise that a company will only ever be as good as the people who work for it. To this end, we invest in people’s careers and have a flexible operating approach that allows for an exceptional work-life-balance.

Our Future

We are passionate about exploring and challenging the relationship between building design and risk-to-life safety, as well as the cost of protecting against those risks. We are particularly excited about some of the recommendations within the Hackitt report and studies such as those underway at the Warren Centre in Australia. As strong believers in quantified risk assessment and in implementing new methods of addressing complex issues in a more transparent and informative way, we are well placed and eager to move the subject forward in this direction.
