Fire Safety Services

Most members of LBA’s fire safety team are former Fire and Rescue Service personnel so the team is well-versed in the requirements of the Regulatory Reform (Fire) Order legislation and other fire safety guidance and best practice, and has a wealth of experience in how to apply these requirements in a range of different scenarios.

Our fire engineers are formally registered with recognised industry bodies and actively contribute to industry events through presentations, as well as supporting the development of standards and best practice, specifically through the Institute of Fire Engineers transport working group and the Rail Industry Fire Association.

We support architects’ teams during the early stages of projects, ensuring the fire safety compliance of designs against relevant standards. We have also helped clients develop bespoke fire strategies for the construction phase of projects, a phase which differs from the fire strategy of the final design of the building as the varying site hazards and risks during construction need to be considered.

We work across a variety of projects, such as multiple Crossrail contracts, the Houses of Parliament, Landmark Pinnacle and the Dartford River Crossing and Hindhead road tunnels. We also undertake fire risk assessments for commercial, office, residential and licensed premises.
