Checklist for

ESCS Submission

When deciding on the type of Engineered Smoke Control System (ESCS) or Smoke and Heat Exhaust Ventilation System (SHEVS) required, the risks are considerably greater when one assumes standard conditions instead of taking all individual circumstances into account.


Fire safety engineering cannot be studied in isolation.

Well-balanced fire safety solution needs Innovation, Functionality, Sustainability and Performance.

Checklist for

PB Plan Submission

Prior to any performance-based solution approach, any non-compliance is usually submitted through the waiver application. In return, the fire authority may propose or recommend the non-compliance to be submitted through the performance-based plan submission.

Checklist for

Fire Engineering Assessment

With the prevailing building codes and standards changing to address new technologies and market trends, existing buildings may be outdated or deemed to be non-compliant during the stage of upgrading. Innovative fire safety engineering designs for existing building designs are therefore required to ensure continuity and code compliance.

Checklist for

Letter of No Objection (LNO)

With no prejudice, it is not mandatory but usually a common and cost-effective practice for building owners to engage the base Fire Safety Engineer to assess the impact of alterations and additions to the existing performance-based designs for the issuance of the Letter of No Objection (LNO).


Our Fire Safety Engineers can issue Letter of No Objection (LNO)
