London, UK – December 11, 2018 – Warringtonfire (part of Element Materials Technology), the leading fire testing and fire engineering organisation, has been granted House of Expertise status in Dubai.

This recognition by the Directorate of Civil Defense in Dubai (DCD), further enhances the company’s credentials in fire engineering consulting. Warringtonfire is now licensed to carry out its full scope of services, from design to inspection of fire protection and safety systems in readiness for full regulatory approval.

To achieve House of Expertise status, Warringtonfire’s team of fire engineering experts successfully completed a robust testing process to become one of only a small number of fire engineering companies to be formally approved under the House of Expertise scheme in Dubai. This involved demonstrating its ability to satisfy the licence’s requirement mandating strong engineering and architectural credentials, supported by a minimum of 10 years’ relevant experience in their individual fields.

Rob Veitch, EVP Fire & Building Products at Element, commented: “Achieving this licence is a clear indication of the quality of expertise and advice that we provide to our customers in Dubai. Coupled with DCD’s authority, our in-depth understanding of the country’s regulatory requirements and Warringtonfire’s exceptional testing facilities in Dubai and internationally, we have ensured our place as one of the leading independent fire consultancy and testing partners in the Middle East.

We have proudly delivered fire engineering solutions for many of Dubai’s most iconic structures, ensuring the highest standards of fire safety and we are delighted that we are now able to provide this enhanced level of assurance to our customers.”
