Life-saving service

We provide this potentially lifesaving service to a range of construction projects including new commercial and multi-unit title properties, existing buildings under renovation and fire protection upgrades to systems in older public buildings. In particular, our in-house expertise provides essential fire design services for community buildings including schools, churches and childcare centres. And also for: warehouses, converted buildings, apartment complexes, shop fit-outs and medical centres.


Subdivision of commercial and residential buildings

EDC fire engineers can assist you and your surveyor in the subdividing process of your offices, shops, or flats/units. Such subdivisions require an inspection, analysis and a report by qualified fire engineers to ensure compliance with the fire safety documents.


Fire design reports and drawings

Our fire design reports and detailed drawings will ensure compliance with acceptable solutions covered by Section C of the NZ Building Code, which provides for means of escape from buildings and protection of other people’s property.



We have the experience and skills to provide inspection services for:

– The review of fire safety requirements under Building Consents

– Certifications of compliance

– Checking fire damaged buildings


Software investment

We have invested in state-of-the-art computer software. This technology enhances the service we provide to clients who require specific fire engineering design; for example within underground car parks.



We have the experience and knowledge to determine the fire safety requirements for your development project involving new and existing buildings, shop fit-outs and change of use of existing buildings.
