We employ a design approach to fire engineering that helps clients manage risks cost effectively and efficiently. This entails developing a situation-specific strategy, using statistics from real fires, analysis tools and studies of human behaviour. Our experience shows this can realise architectural visions and add value by reducing over-specification from conservative codes of practice.
Ramboll’s proven fire & safety expertise applies to all sectors including high rise, residential, offices, retail, education, sports facilities, industrial, aviation, and healthcare. We also cover all stages of the development process from identifying risks and opportunities for improved value through to construction supervision and advice.

Innovation in fire & safety
Technology, industry best practice and legislation are always changing. In fire engineering and safety risk management awareness of these changes and how they affect different countries is essential. To continuously develop our knowledge, we conduct our own research, maintain links with universities, research organisations and industry, and recruit team members with wide-ranging combinations of expertise. Our organisational structure ensures we share this knowledge throughout our local offices around the world.
