Semper provides Fire Engineering consultancy services to the construction industry. Our business structure is based on well-integrated experts in Engineering, Research, and Surveying – striving to deliver value at all stages of a project, from concept design to construction and the operational life of a building. Collectively, we cover a range of skills and backgrounds, well placed to deliver Fire Safety Strategies which satisfy the intent and spirit of buildings’ functional requirements and objectives.

Semper approaches fire engineering by placing the fire safety strategy at the centre of our work – understanding and helping stakeholders recognise how the building’s features will as a whole respond in the event of a fire. Our engineers are well versed in fire engineering design, computational modelling (fire-smoke behaviour, fire structure interaction, human evacuation), risk analysis and management, as well as probabilistic analysis, and, when required, the ability to perform complex calculations derived from first principles.

Our experts in surveying are essential in ensuring that fire engineering features proposed for budlings are correctly adopted during construction, commissioning, and even years after being used. Moreover, our people keep up to date with the latest advances in fire engineering and building design through their attendance at training sessions, workshops, and conferences around the world.

The Semper team have vast experience in many diverse types and scale of projects – to name a few, the Spire London set to become the tallest residential tower in western Europe, the redevelopment of Red Lion Court designed with flexible workspace adapted to ‘modern requirements and the post-Covid working world’, refurbishment of the 90+ year old Prince Edward Theatre, logistic and supply chain facilities using fully Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMR).

Our integrative approach and consideration of fire engineering principles enables the successful delivery of every building we are engaged in.
