Fire Engineering

How do we resolve the tension between restrictive building codes, regulations, and architectural and sustainable design?

As a well-respected leader in fire engineering, Elementa use science, engineering, and an experienced network of fire safety engineers to facilitate freedom in design, balancing function, aesthetics, and sustainability, while maintaining building fire safety to community expectations.

The necessity of sustainable buildings brings with it a complex challenge in designing building fire safety strategies. Such strategies can resolve large atriums, progressive architectural design features, and preserve the integrity of renewable building materials. Fire safety engineers assist in making design and project goals a reality.

Our engineers are respected in the industry as thought leaders. They are at the forefront of research and work with policy departments and professional bodies to influence future building codes and regulations helping make safer, healthier, and more sustainable buildings.

The building stands as an island, three-sided, a little unusual, not joined to any other buildings, a true independent landmark in London. Not only is the building dynamic, but so is Covent Garden, our home, it’s changing all the time - and One Aldwych needs to reflect that: this is a natural evolution.
