  • Atrium Smoke Management
    FRS is experienced in both the strategic and detailed design of smoke and heat exhaust ventilation systems.  We have much experience in the design of both mechanical and natural smoke management systems.  We are also experienced in the achieving of statutory approvals for such designs and in the on-site commissioning of systems.  Examples of relevant FRS projects include Westfield London (Europe’s largest urban shopping centre) and Park Plaza Hotel, Westminster (London’s tallest open balcony access hotel).
  • Automatic Fire Suppression Systems
    FRS is expert in the design, specification, tendering, supervision and commissioning of automatic sprinkler systems, gaseous systems and drenchers.  We have years of experience in the design of ordinary and high hazard systems, ceiling and in-rack systems and bespoke drencher systems.  FRS offers designers the opportunity to focus system design, improve protection levels at reduced costs and to ensure achieval of the full benefit that should accrue to a building design from the installation of a suppression system.  Our client list includes Allergan Pharmaceuticals (Westport), Field Boxmore Chesapeake (Limerick), Market Square Centre (Carrickmacross), Carbery Milk Products (Ballineen) and the Skycourt Centre (Shannon).
  • Positive Pressurisation Systems
    FRS is experienced in the detailed design, statutory approval, specification, tendering, construction supervision and commissioning of positive pressurisation systems.  In recent years, we have designed and supervised the installation of successful systems within the existing fine Athanaeum Building (single stair office) in Limerick, as well as a number of residential blocks at Bru na Sionna, Co. Clare. 
  • Impulse Ventilation Systems
    FRS has overseen the installation of impulse fan systems in a number of very large enclosed car parks including the 4,500 space underground car park at Westfield London (with Novenco NV) and The Park, Carrickmines, Co. Dublin (with Synergy Engineering).  We have assisted developers and approving authorities on multiple projects in the appraisal of contractor led proposals, typically leading to rationalisation, improvement and cost savings.
  • Smoke Clearance Systems
    FRS is experienced in the design and specification of smoke clearance systems in large windowless buildings – generally in the industrial or storage uses.  We have developed a design approach to natural ventilation that resolves the uncertainty regarding the need for sprinklers in racked storage buildings and have received statutory approval for same from a number of local authorities.
