Fire Engineering

We have you covered

Fires in buildings cost millions of dollars-worth of damage each year and the two major causes are electrical fault and human error. That’s why the Building Code of Australia (BCA) has very high standards and why the fire engineering team at WGE take their jobs very seriously.

Our goal is simple – to be part of a team where the architect gets a great design, where the developer gets a healthy return on investment, where the whole team enjoys the project, but most of all, where the resulting structure is as safe as possible in the worst of circumstances.

Our tight-knit and highly experienced team of engineers has a rigorous knowledge of the building code and many years’ experience working on projects such as Perth’s Church House, Melbourne’s Upper West Side development and Blundstone Arena, Hobart.

WGE’s expert engineers have repeatedly proven through Performance Based Solutions that it is possible to reduce plant capacity and increase ceiling heights and maximize returns while still complying with the code on new buildings.

When it comes to old buildings, particularly residential blocks, many of them simply don’t comply. That’s where our laser-sharp team can add the most value – identifying and implementing the most efficient and cost-effective solutions to keep people safe and your building protected.
