Expertise to interpret and apply building standards and codes to meet fire safety criteria
Fire safety audit or fire risk assessment is a comprehensive review of a building in Singapore, in order to assess its fire risks and offer recommendations to improve its safety. It is required for all buildings to comply with the prevailing fire codes and fire safety legislation in Singapore, be it a newly constructed building or an existing one undergoing additions and alterations.

Fire safety audit or fire risk assessment in Singapore is a study of the building to determine its fire risk, as well as offering recommendations for improved safety of occupants and infrastructure. When conducting the assessment, qualified fire safety engineers will first gather relevant information, identify fire hazards and existing control measures, likelihood of occurrence, as well as potential severity to determine overall risk level. From there, they can propose risk control measures and implementation procedures.
It is important and beneficial that fire safety audit & fire risk assessment in Singapore be conducted in properties while they are still on their building phase. By involving SHEVS IFT’s fire safety engineers early in the design process, we are able to assist building owners, architects & designers to interpret and apply the building codes to meet fire safety criteria. In turn, this allows us to develop effective and efficient solutions to meet design intents, helping to save time and cost during the implementation and construction phases.
