About us

Braidwood Fire aims not to be a faceless corporate brand, we want to be defined by who our people are, their values, ideals and imagination. Integrity and creativity are character traits which we encourage to flow through the essence of this company and we do this by choosing our staff carefully.

We in addition choose our clients carefully. We do not blindly undertake a project just because there is profit. We aim to align ourselves with clients who demonstrate the same values as we do. If we suspect that a project or client is attempting to operate or achieve an objective that we do not think is good for those whom our works shall affect, we refuse the work.

We continually seek ways in which to improve our staff, our service and our environment. We, as the name Braidwood ,suggests; seek new opportunities to understand, shape and progress the way in which we live through analysis, research and experience while using solid engineering fundamentals as stepping stones to a better future.  

Braidwood Fire aims to develop integrated fire strategies for both building designer and building user. We offer a complete fire safety solution from conception to maintenance, from Fire Engineered Solution to Fire Risk Assessment. Our alternative approach to prescriptive standards use a blend of research, analysis and creative design flair to produce bespoke fire safety solutions as part of a design team.
