Omnii have experience in undertaking fire engineering analysis to enable our clients to maximise their yield, yet do so in a manner that placates the Fire Brigade’s concerns with these types of facilities.
Each carpark has its own level of risk, level of code compliance and set of challenges, often overlayed with the approval process (and hence risk appetite) of the relevant fire brigade authorities.
This all leads to a more considered deployment of appropriate fire safety strategies, particularly when considering the innovations in this sector.
Omnii’s team have completed a wide variety of carpark type projects, including:
Nexus Corporate Park is widely regarded as a landmark commercial site in Melbourne’s South East. The construction of this 10-storey building provided an additional floor of office space, a training facility and 6 levels of parking to support growing tenancies.
|Location||Gold Coast, Qld|
The multi-storey carpark is part of the Gold Coast University Hospital campus. The carpark development comprised 5 storeys above ground with 2 basement levels and approximately 2,300 car spaces.
|Architect||Bickerton Masters Architecture|
Omnii developed a fire risk assessment methodology that demonstrated that the hazard of the site boundary in proximity to the openings in the carpark wall, met the relevant Performance Requirements of the NCC. This performance solution mitigated costly additional building works required by the prescriptive NCC provisions.
