How FPC Risk manages the complexities of a monumental project

Turning an old railroad station into a brand-new and functioning neighborhood, is a complex undertaking, requiring close coordination between builder, architect, authorities, fire department, and FPC Risk.

From the start of the project to the aftercare, FPC Risk goes through different steps in ensuring a fire-safe environment.

Our engineers develop a fire safety concept that clearly formulates the different partners’ codes and regulations. They evaluate the design plans, define recommendations, identify the needed deviation requests, and regularly consult with the project team before developing a final fire safety concept.
