Fire Design Solutions’ provides the complete service to deliver the ideal smoke ventilation system design and installation for your project. Our aim isn’t just to satisfy the requirements of legislation and building regulations, but to add value by developing a system that maximises space within the building, is cost efficient and maintains the very highest standards of fire safety.

Regardless of the size and scope of your project, we can provide a bespoke solution that fits the unique needs of your development. Our installations are characterised by an attention to detail that guarantees quality and delivers complete reliability.


We employ a team of highly qualified and hugely experienced fire engineering consultants. These experts work together to provide architects, contractors and developers with truly creative solutions that integrate perfectly with the wider building design and make a real difference to the overall cost of a smoke ventilation project.

CFD Modelling

Computational Fluid Dynamics is a design tool that aids with the detailed design of mechanical smoke venting systems. The software allows the designer to model complex airflows, fire patterns and smoke behaviour within the building, and to visually inspect and analyse the airflow patterns, ensuring the best possible system is designed.

Once the system has been installed the results of CFD modelling can be authenticated. This will then reassure all approving authorities that each component has been fully installed and operating correctly.

CFD analysis is required when applying a fire engineered solution that is not code compliant or an ADB prescribed solution. FDS presents the CFD results in a report suitable for submission to Building Control and as part of our service will take the design through the approvals process.
