Emergency Lighting Design Service

Emergency lighting coverage is required for many commercial buildings as part of the overall fire safety feature of the building and to ensure the egress routes within the building are visible in case of building failure and fire occurrence.

An electrical engineer is required to design the emergency lighting system to suit the layout of the building, and this must comply with “Acceptable Solution F6/AS1”.

According to the New Zealand Building Code, emergency lighting is required for buildings in the case of:

Escape routes in excess of 20m from a final exit,
Changes of direction,
Tripping hazards,
Stairways and ramps,
Safe paths
Smoke lobbies.

To complement our expertise in fire consulting and passive fire design, THE DESIGNFIRE works closely with a certified emergency lighting engineer. This enables us to offer compliant emergency lighting coverage design as part of our fire consulting services and for building consent submissions.

our latest work

We’re proud of our portfolio of building projects where our fire engineering consulting services have been used.

THE DESGIN FIRE team of highly skilled commercial architects and fire prevention engineers have helped create unique architectural design solutions with enhanced fire safety and protection.

Some of our recent architectural achievements are shown below – please get in touch with us to see more.

“There are 81 units being developed on the site; the majority of the units are terraced houses. We are proud of the scale of the project and the opportunity it brings for new home buyers to get onto the property market. We needed a fire report for our development Building Consent application.

The site was pretty tight with lots quite near to each other; THE DESIGNFIRE was quick to respond to our enquiry and forthcome with a strategy to get the documentation together in line with our Building Consent lodgement target dates. They listened to our needs and were finding ways to make the process efficient.

THE DESIGNFIRE was very responsive and willing to assist in clarifying matters with the structural engineer and architect to deliver their outputs. We are very happy with the result.”

“My name is Farzbod Taefi. I am the director of Skills Update Training Institute. About five years ago, in conjunction with NMIT, we purchased a site on 42 Upper Queen Street. This building needed a lot of renovation and make-over.

We found them very flexible and receptive to our comments and ideas. I think it was the winning card for us as the client. Getting the permits through the council is not an easy task. They had good contacts in the council, they were well known to the council, and that really speeded up the process. I think if we’ve chosen another group, this project may have taken twice as long. We have recommended THE DESIGNFIRE to many people and referred them to Louie. You know the sample of his work is here, and people can see what they can get.”

“THE DESIGNFIRE and their team of various expertise helped us to complete our Complex commercial building, involving multi-tenancy occupancy. THE DESIGNFIRE team came up with a resolution which was cost-effective and workable. Without THE DESIGNFIRE, we would have a difficult time completing it.”

—Paul Singh, Director, APL Windows

“With a long relationship with THE DESIGNFIRE, they have a strong background on fire engineering as well as precise design and consultation. Happy working with them and willing to do other projects together again.”

—Jae Hyun

“Louie has been a precious asset in developing fire engineering for our second dwelling project. His price was very reasonable, his communication prompt and helpful. I would recommend him and use his services again.”
