Protection and fire-prevention measures consulting
Antea Group is perfectly positioned to support you with effective solutions for large fire compartments. We can help you arrive at the optimum design for a new build plan, for example. We can also provide consultancy, mediation in the event of a difference of opinion between the stakeholders or with the permit issuer, and solutions for challenges relating to fire safety in general.
Our team is well known for its independence and expertise in the field of safety and fire prevention measures. Experience has shown that we often manage to devise an acceptable solution where other firms have reached an impasse.
While there are various laws, regulations and agreements relating to fire safety, there are also some gray and unspecified areas. Our team of experts has a proven track record in all areas of fire safety, particularly in those gray and unspecified areas. We work closely with the various interested parties to deliver fire safety in the form of assessments, concepts, designs and assistance with implementation.
Fire Safety Concept (Integrated)
A “fire safety concept” is an integrated fire safety system, i.e. a coordinated collection of fire safety provisions in a building. It seeks a balance between the required fire safety measures and facilities and the desired level of fire safely.
The regulations only provide for the safety of those present in the building and the ability to evacuate people safely. The protection of company or organizational interests is up to the owner/user.
The right balance in the fire safety provisions is sought in the well-known triad of structural, installation and organizational fire prevention measures (BIO). A fire safety concept can be implemented at various levels, from the simplest (standard regulations) to an FSE-driven concept. In particular, when a design does not fit within the performance parameters of the regulations, or when certain requirements dictate that major radical (possibly structural) changes be carried out or major investments made, there is often a need for a custom solution.
Fire Safety Engineering
Whether you are building an office complex or an industrial site, as soon as building projects start becoming complex, safety regulations will provide less and less certainty.
These projects require a different mentality and a different approach to arrive at equivalent solutions. Taking an integral risk approach, carrying out scenario analyses and thinking outside the box play critical roles.
By implementing Fire Safety Engineering (FSE), you reduce not only the number of victims during incidents, but also the damage to your property and the environment. Moreover, FSE enables us to quantify the danger and risk of a fire as well as the consequences of a fire. This makes FSE a tool that you can use to assess optimal protection and fire-prevention measures.
