About Warringtonfire Canberra
Warringtonfire Australia provide fire safety engineering, independent fire testing, fire assessment and product certification services to both the private and public sector in Canberra. Our clients include developers, builders, architects, and project managers. We also work closely with building surveyors and certifiers to ensure your project is fire compliant.
Fire safety is one of the major regulatory hurdles for building and infrastructure projects. Compliance with the Building Codes Board and associated Australian standards often limits designers in achieving their vision and objectives for a project.
At Warringtonfire Canberra, our fire safety engineers use a performance-based approach to customise a package of alternative fire safety measures for design, allowing our clients to achieve their objectives and maintain a level of fire safety required by the building code and approval authorities.
Working collaboratively with key stakeholders in Canberra is at the heart of how we operate. Our fire safety engineers work closely with designers and architects, planning and local authorities, builders and developers, and project managers. Collaboration ensures we achieve a ‘right first time’ approach.
Our fire safety engineers combine fire and evacuation modelling tools with our innovative in-house programs to predict the events and conditions produced by real life building fires. This allows our clients to achieve their design objectives while maintaining the level of fire safety required.
Our experience on iconic projects around the country also means that we can work with the relevant authorities to secure the necessary approvals and comply with both State and Local Government design codes. You can view our project case studies here.
