Fire Engineering Services

Fire Engineering Services

Fire engineering (Fire Prevention and Fighting system, Smoke Dictation Systems, Gas leak detection system, Alarms systems) is an essential element of building design in modern buildings, especially in the Nigerian Oil & Gas Industry.

Of all the responsibilities facing the property industry, keeping people safe from the dangers of fire and smoke is among the greatest. Part science and technology, part psychology, part management, and law, this field requires rigorous mastery of all aspects of emergency planning, fire protection engineering, fire suppression system, security system design and building and fire codes, while also ensuring clients realize their architectural vision and operational goals while meeting their responsibilities.

Efficient Delivery: Connectivity, Collaboration & Diversity

Aziza Group’s fire engineering community consists of more than 12 experts located around the world who work in close collaboration, sharing best practices and knowledge. Our mission is to deliver quality, innovation, and value to our clients by understanding how to integrate fire safety in the design process in relation to local conditions and codes.

We are proud to have a talented pool of fire engineering experts who are highly specialized with relevant local and international projects execution.

Fire safety cannot be understood in isolation and the combination of our global expertise and relationship with other disciplines brings additional dimensions to our work providing an efficient project delivery model and bringing commercial benefits for clients.

Across Nigeria, we provide a broad range of services to deliver fire-safe buildings that are also functional and economical. These include the development of fire safety strategies, fire engineering design and specification, fire safety audits, fire risk assessments, computer simulation for fire dynamics, value engineering exercises, and peer reviews.

Fire Prevention and Fighting System, Gas Leak & Smoke Detection System, Alarms systems

Our role is to apply scientific and engineering principles, rules and expert judgement based on our understanding of how fire impacts a building, the interaction with human behaviour and how to ensure safe access for firefighters. We combine theoretical knowledge and practical application, using advanced computer modelling of fire, smoke, evacuation and structural response.

In some places, we also provide fire safety systems design and post-occupancy safety solutions.

Interaction with Designers and the Planning Authorities

Given that fire engineers are responsible for the fire safety strategy of a project, our work informs the whole design team on fire safety matters. It provides design guidance to architects, advises the building services engineers on what systems are required, such as smoke ventilation, fire suppression system/ fire dampers, fire detection, smoke alarms, emergency lighting and sprinkler systems, and provides vital information to structural engineers on how long a structure must be protected and how that is achieved.

The fire strategy is also a key document used by authorities to base their decision on approving the safety aspects of a building. One of the most important aspects of our work is to liaise with building authorities as a scheme develops to discuss fire safety aspects, demonstrate that the strategy is safe in different scenarios and eventually gain approval for a fire-safe building that also meets its aesthetic, functional and commercial objectives.
