COWI provides fire technical advice on many types of buildings - from high-rise buildings to offices and industrial buildings. Our professional level is high and based on solid fire technical knowledge and experience.

COWI provides fire technical advice in all phases of the construction - from the first idea to the operational phase - regardless of the building's size and use.

Fire Solutions in the early planning

Fire safety requirements can govern the dispostition of a building. Therefore, it is important that building owners and architects integrate fire safety as early as possible.

When the fire requirements are included early in the planning process, alternative strategies and solutions can be planned.

In this way, hasty solutions late in the process can be avoided.

Many competences

We embrace the whole range of fire technical services. Not because everyone can do everything, but because we are many fire consultants with different competences.

We prepare fire technical documentation to the authorities, perform CFD analyzes, evacuation calculations and risk analyzes, and design fire safety installations.

COWI's international fire services

COWI's fire specialists are located at several locations in Denmark, and besides this COWI has fire engineers in Dubai, Norway and Sweden.

From our offices in Denmark and Dubai, we solve many and various international projects in cooperation with our local colleagues.

Often we solve tasks based on US, British or local regulations, standards and guidelines.
