Our long-term experience covers construction sites from residential buildings to industrial plants and demanding special projects. 

The fire safety industry is constantly evolving and regulations and instructions related to fire safety are also changing. We know how to interpret fire safety regulations expertly, because we actively influence the development of fire safety legislation, e.g. issuing opinions and carrying out preliminary studies. We are actively involved in industry organizations and working groups in developing fire safety design guidelines, practices and standards. We carry out research and development assignments for the construction products industry and other players in the sector.

As a reputable and qualified fire safety design office, we increase confidence that the fire safety issues of a construction project are in order. Our good relations with the authorities ensure that the architect, the builder and the contractor do not have to negotiate and resolve every challenge that comes with fire safety with the authorities themselves.

We have honed our design process over the years to be flexible and smooth. We follow the ISO 9001 quality system and ISO 14001 environmental management system . Therefore, we invest in the quality of design work and take into account the impact of our operations and work on the environment. We always dedicate ourselves to our work innovatively and with regard to the needs of the customer. We have a special know-how about fire safety design for demanding projects. Regardless of the size of the design project, it is important to involve the fire safety designer in the design team at the beginning of the project.
