About Smart Fire
Who We Are
We are Fire-Safety Design Consultants.
Smart Fire was born to satisfy the need of accurate and timely fire-safety design.
We design fire protection in buildings for life safety, property protection and firefighter safety
– which we are passionate about.
Communication is key. Smart Fire liaises with key stakeholders to ensure a precise design to
mitigate errors during consent and construction.
We operate fire-safety engineering practices and have a high standard of quality that earns us
our moral reputation.

Design and is now sharing his enthusiasm and experience with you and your projects across
