Heritage Fire Consultancy Projects


Houses of Parliament, Westminster, London.

Queens entrance WestminsterAs part of a team of fire consultants currently (September 2005) reviewing the fire safety engineering strategy of the Palace of Westminster, I contributed the parts of the qualitative design review (QDR) dealing with: the establishment of fire safety objectives; history of fires in similar buildings; and important fire and smoke spread scenarios. This interesting work is of critical value in view of the prestigious and important nature of the buildings which include roughly 1000 rooms. With other members of the team this study has involved making a selective survey of the buildings concentrating on the risk areas.
