fire engineering services

At Omnii, we’re dedicated to enhancing building and occupant safety through our specialised fire engineering services. Our expert team is
equipped to deliver solutions across Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane, meeting the unique needs of our clients including architects, building owners, and property developers.

WHAT IS FIRE ENGINEERING?

The National Construction Code (NCC) allows buildings to be designed by either a set of prescriptive requirements, knowns as the Deemed-to-Satisfy (DtS) Provisions, or via Performance Solutions.

Omnii participates in the design of buildings by providing a fire engineering service. Fire engineering is vital for building safety and compliance, applying scientific and engineering principles to safeguard people, property, and the environment from fire.

Omnii’s fire engineers possess a comprehensive understanding of fire behaviour in structures, including how fires develop, spread, and impact building integrity, materials under fire conditions, smoke movement, and occupant behaviour.

With this knowledge, Omnii designs effective fire safety strategies that align with clients’ functional building requirements, architectural goals, and cost-efficiency.
