Exova Warringtonfire, the specialist fire engineering, testing and certification provider, has announced its latest expansion into Dublin, Ireland, as part of its global growth strategy.
The move will see the company provide fire engineering consultancy to help customers meet the Amended Building Control Regulations which came into force in March 2014. The changes to the Building Control Regulations relating to the commencement and certification of construction works arose from high profile failures during Ireland’s previous building boom, most notably Priory Hall in Dublin.
Customers across Ireland will now be able to access a comprehensive range of services including fire engineering (fire strategies, fire and smoke modelling, evacuation analysis, radiation study, on-site inspections etc), fire risk assessment, fire systems design as well as fire risk profiling.
The company will provide support to developers, architects, product manufacturers and private and public sector landlords.
David Harries, general manager of Fire Engineering, Europe for Exova said: “As a specialist fire engineering company with global presence, we can devise fire safety solutions that support design visions while ensuring safer buildings for occupants not only across Ireland, but also to Irish companies investing abroad.
The new office in Dublin underlines our growth ambitions and significantly strengthens our ability to help our customers in Ireland to navigate the new regulatory landscape.”
