Making Buildings Fire Safe

Fire safety compliance is a topic that is often seen as something complicating and delaying a project. It appears difficult and expensive. Fire protection is also a critical item when it comes to construction defects claims, critical defects notices and fire safety orders.

CJK Fire & Safety is here to assist you in making new developments and existing buildings fire safe. We are experienced in applying holistic fire engineering principles to projects ranging from residential dwellings and apartment blocks to hospitals and shopping centres. When working on a project, we concentrate on safety and performance of a building, rather than ticking boxes for compliance.

We believe that every problem has a solution, it only needs to be looked at by an experienced fire safety engineer. We invite you to give us a call to discuss your fire-safety related issue or browse our case studies and blog so that you can excel on you next project.

The Critical Role of Expert Witnesses in Cladding Cases

The Critical Role of Expert Witnesses in Cladding Cases

In recent years, the issue of flammable cladding has gained significant attention in Australia and around the world due to a series of building fires and subsequent safety concerns. Lawyers must navigate through complex legalities and technicalities as legal battles ensue to hold responsible parties accountable for the installation of dangerous cladding materials. To assist with this they engage expert witnesses, including fire safety engineers like Christina Knorr (CJK Fire & Safety). Expert witnesses provide their knowledge and specialised insights to help the Court understand the technical aspects of the case to make informed, binding judicial decisions.
