Smoke Control Systems Engineering

We prepare rational analysis reports for the design of smoke control systems, using the Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS) model for atrium smoke control system design and the CONTAM building airflow model for high-rise and zoned pressurization smoke control system design. We perform commissioning testing to verify smoke control system performance and peer review of performance-based designs.

Evacuation Analysis

FSG personnel have performed evacuation analysis for stadiums, airports, casinos, large multi-use facilities, and historic structures. We have performed evacuation analysis for a range of threats, including fire, active shooter, bomb threat, and severe weather scenarios. We have used a range of evacuation models, such as Pathfinder, Mass Motion, and EXODUS  to perform these evaluations.

Risk Management and Mitigation

We have performed risk management studies for a range of facilities to evaluate and assess existing conditions and potential risk mitigation measures. We prepare emergency management plans and fire hazard analysis both independently and as part of the overall risk management evaluation.

Mitigate Your Risk

3D Scanning

We have the ability to 3D scan facilities. We use the latest technologies to scan using IR or Lidar to create accurate 3D models of the facilities. From these scans you can virtually visit the site saving travel costs or create CAD files for design work.
