Practice Statement

Olsson Fire & Risk are a leading, independent specialist Fire Engineering Consultancy with offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Manchester, London and Bath. We take a holistic, proactive approach to gain a clear understanding of the total fire safety philosophy of every project, in order to fully appreciate the effects elements of the design will have on the level of fire safety being provided.

Trading under the name Olsson Fire & Risk began in the UK in January 2016 when founding directors Simon Lay and Sam Liptrott saw an opportunity to create a new practice focused solely on fire engineering services and on the needs of clients. Keen to ensure that the new practice could offer clients the same security and confidence as a larger organisation, Simon and Sam joined forces with friends and former colleagues; Per Olsson and Carl Voss who had built a successful practice in Australia & New Zealand, where the Olsson Fire & Risk business was launched in 2011.

The Olsson Fire & Risk UK team have experience in providing fire engineering support across a wide range of sectors such as healthcare, education, residential, retail, commercial, arts and culture, and sports. We are currently delivering projects across the UK, and further afield in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia. We understand the differences in approvals and legislation across the UK and across the world. From the outset, our team has included delivery in Scotland for Scottish projects.

Our services include:
- Fire safety strategy development
- Computational fluid dynamics modelling
- Evacuation modelling
- Structural fire engineering
- Research and development projects
- Expert witness work
- Construction support
- Post construction remediation support
