Design and Engineering

Our in-house engineering department (with full design office) and personnel are fully experienced in the industry and uniquely qualified to provide detailed designs for all types of systems including Fire Protection design, Fire Alarm System design, Fire Suppression System design. We can provide the analysis and design of systems best suited to provide a reliable, code compliant and cost effective solution.

Our state-of-the-art CAD capability allows us to meet tight deadlines and maintain "fast track" installation schedules.  We prepare code compliant fire solution design drawings using Autocad and Hydratec fire protection software, utilising ,  calculating the hydraulic requirements for systems to determine pipe sizes, material schedules and drawings for Architectural requirements,  coordinating pipe and nozzle etc. locations with building components.

Our designers are registered with all relevant bodies, (SAQCC) and authorities and are compliant with SANS1-0139 and all other relevant national and international standards.

We read and interpret construction documents that includes drawings, specifications and contracts and actively participate with pre-planning the overall fire solution system design approach. We also participate in the coordination of new projects that often requires analytical thinking to solve unique and complex fire protection situations. We have the ability to manage multiple design projects simultaneously depending on complexity of scope.

At IFS, we offer and are responsible for conceptual and detailed design of active and passive fire and life safety systems in residential, commercial and industrial areas. This would include hydraulic calculation, gas flow calculations, hazardous areas classification, and the preparation of fire engineering design basis reports, detailed engineering drawings and specifications in accordance with relevant building codes and standards and using software packages including but not limited to AutoCAD.
