UAE-based AESG opens fire and safety division
Fully licensed by local civil defence authorities, the new division will offer 11 services and will be headed by Peter van Gorp as Division Director
UAE-based consultancy AESG has establishment a dedicated Fire and Life Safety consultancy division, it announced in a statement on Thursday.
Fully licensed by local civil defence authorities, the new division will offer 11 services including Building Fire and Life Safety Strategy and Design, Qualitative and Quantitative Fire Risk Assessments, Fire Systems Design and Engineering, Fire Safety Audits, Fire Protection System Design.
Division Director, Peter van Gorp, who will be heading the division, said: “Skyscrapers and high-rise buildings are commonplace to city skylines in the Middle East and these large developments require sophisticated fire and life safety strategies.
“There is a tremendous amount of oil and gas related activities in the region which require detailed planning to develop optimised and effective fire engineering solutions.”
“I have seen many fire protection systems installed which do not mitigate the main concern of the client in providing the most effective and optimised strategy for life safety.
“The level of fire protection required should always be seen in relation to the level of risk mitigation, ensuring that the safety of building occupants is never compromised.
“At AESG, we have invested not only in developing technical knowledge, but also in insuring that it is translated and incorporated into the services we deliver,” he added.
The launch of this new division reflects AESG’s growth strategy, as the company expanded its Environment Consultancy and Commissioning division last year with a new headquarters in London.
