The team of our experienced fire consultants and fire engineering designers work alongside architects or architectural designers to integrate fire protection and passive fire design into residential, commercial, and industrial building project designs.

With an in-depth understanding of current New Zealand fire regulations, we can prepare professional fire reports to submit with your building consent application. Our fire reports have been submitted to many Territorial Authorities and have been successfully accepted resulting in client satisfaction. We have been working in this field for many years, and are proficient in providing the level of details the Councils require.

Please get in touch to learn more about getting a Fire Engineering Report completed for your project.

Fire Engineering in Auckland, New Zealand

Fire engineering pertains to designing a building to protect both life and property in the event of an unexpected fire. This involves a comprehensive understanding of material choices and spatial design to minimise and contain the spread of fires. In addition fire engineering design also incorporates an understanding of human behaviour in the event of a fire.

“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.”

“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.”
