MLM Consulting Engineers provided fire engineering services. The fire strategy provided a design that meets the requirements of Building Regulations Part B (Fire Safety). MLM Consulting Engineers worked closely with the project team with specific focus as follows:

  • The fire engineering advice allowed the client to meet their aspiration for open plan living that fell outside the current guidance. This allowed the project to be more marketable. We were also able to demonstrate compliance in a number of areas e.g. reduction of mechanical extract fans whilst reducing construction costs.
  • Attendance at fire workshops specifically resolving common corridors with extended travel distances and open plan apartment layouts which met full compliance with Building Regulations.
  • Proposal to use a range of fire engineering techniques on the project to achieve flexible design.
